(30 ILCS 415/8)
(from Ch. 127, par. 708)
If the State fails to pay the principal of or interest on the Bonds as
the same become due, a civil action to compel payment may be instituted in
the Supreme Court of Illinois as a court of original jurisdiction by the
holder or holders of the Bonds in respect of which such failure exists.
Delivery of the summons and a copy of the complaint to the Attorney General
or leaving them at his office in the capital with his assistant or clerk
shall constitute good and sufficient service to give the Supreme Court of
Illinois jurisdiction of the subject matter of such a suit of the State and
its officer or officers named as defendants for the purpose of compelling
such payment. Any case or cause of action concerning the validity of this
Act relates to the revenue of the State of Illinois.
