Section 92: Enforcement of order securing landowners

Section 92. If the corporation neglects to comply with such order, the supreme judicial court, upon application of the landowner interested in its execution, or his assigns, shall have jurisdiction in equity to enforce the specific performance thereof. Or if the corporation, for more than forty-eight hours after written notice of such neglect, given to the president or superintendent, fails to begin the work required to be done, or thereafter unreasonably delays to complete it, the person so interested may recover in tort double the damages sustained by him by reason of the neglect.
