Part 3. Licensing

Injunctive Relief -- Manner Of Charging Violation

37-3-326. Injunctive relief -- manner of charging violation. Notwithstanding any other provision in this chapter, the board may maintain an action to enjoin a person from engaging in the practice of medicine until a license to practice medicine is procured. A person who has been enjoined and who violates the injunction is punishable for contempt of court. The injunction does not relieve the person practicing medicine without a license from a criminal prosecution. The remedy by injunction is in addition to remedies provided for the criminal prosecution of the offender. In charging a person in a complaint for injunction or in an affidavit, information, or indictment with a violation of this law by practicing medicine without a license, it is sufficient to charge that the person did, on a certain day and in a certain county, engage in the practice of medicine not having a license to do so, without averring further or more particular facts concerning the violation.
