In General.—

the Commission has brought a civil action against the defendant under section 41307(a) of this title; or
the defendant resides or transacts business, if the Commission has not brought such an action.
Remedies by Court.—
After notice to the defendant, and a showing that the standards for granting injunctive relief by courts of equity are met, the court may grant a temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction for a period not to exceed 10 days after the Commission has issued an order disposing of the complaint.
Attorney Fees.—
A defendant prevailing in a civil action under this section shall be allowed reasonable attorney fees to be assessed and collected as part of the costs of the action.
