AR Code § 14-54-1504 (2016) What's This?

(b) On granting the temporary writ, the court shall require a bond on the part of the applicant to the effect that the applicant will pay to the enjoined defendant such damages, not exceeding an amount to be specified, as the defendant sustains by reason of the injunction should the court finally decide that the applicant was not entitled to the injunction.
