“ (j) Whenever a written charge has been filed pursuant to subsection (1) alleging that any respondent has engaged in any unlawful employment practice and, after preliminary investigation, the Commission has determined

that probable cause exists for crediting such written charge, 20

the Commission may petition any United States court of ap

peals or, if the court of appeals to which application might 22 be made is in vacation, any district court within any circuit

or district, respectively, wherein the unlawful employment 24

practice in question is alleged to have occurred, or wherein 25 the respondent resides or transacts business, for appropriate




1 injunctive relief pending the final adjudication of the Com

2 mission, or the securing of a voluntary agreement between 3 the parties under subsection (b), (e), or (g) of this sec4 tion, with respect to the matter in question. Upon the filing


of any such petition the court shall cause notice thereof to




be served upon the respondent and thereupon shall have 7 jurisdiction to grant such injunctive relief or temporary 8 restraining order as it deems just and proper. Such respond9 ent shall be given an opportunity to appear by counsel and

present any relevant testimony. Notwithstanding any other 11 provision of this subsection, a temporary restraining order

may be issued without notice if a petition alleges that sub13 stantial and irreparable injury to the alleged aggrieved party 14 will be unavoidable and any such temporary restraining 15 order shall be effective for no longer than five days and will 16 become void at the expiration of such period. 17

(k) (1) Any person or party aggrieved by a final 18 order of the Commission may obtain a review of such order 19 in any United States court of appeals of the judicial circuit 20 wherein the unlawful employment practice in question was 21 alleged to have been engaged in or wherein such person or
