This chapter discusses the following: injunctions, damages in lieu of an injunction, and joint and concurrent liability. An action for damages lies after a tort has been committed. An injunction is sought to prevent the continuance of a tort or in anticipation of a threatened tort. It is an order commanding the discontinuance of some activity or forbidding the causing of damage. Where a court could issue an injunction, but decides against doing so, it may award damages in lieu. This power was originally conferred by section 2 of the Chancery Amendment Act 1858 (Lord Cairns’ Act) and has been continued by later legislation.
