Injunctions for failure to comply with non-discrimination notice.

65.—(1) Subject to subsection (2), the High Court or the Circuit Court may, on the motion of the Authority, grant an injunction to prevent discrimination by a person specified in the order of the court concerned of a type so specified.

(2) Subsection (1) applies to a case where, in the period of 5 years beginning on the date on which a non-discrimination notice came into operation, the Authority satisfies the High Court or the Circuit Court, as the case may be, that there is a likelihood of a further discrimination, contravention or failure referred to in section 62 (1) by the person on whom the notice was served.

(3) The jurisdiction conferred on the Circuit Court by this section shall be exercised by the judge for the time being assigned to the circuit where the person on whom the non-discrimination notice was served ordinarily resides or carries on any profession, business or occupation.
