(from Ch. 111, par. 8401-100)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2023)
Injunctions; cease and desist orders.
(a) If any person violates a provision of this Act, the Secretary
may, in the name of the People of the State of Illinois through
the Attorney General of the State of Illinois or the State's Attorney of the county in which the violation is alleged to have occurred, petition for an order
enjoining the violation or for an order enforcing compliance with this Act.
Upon the filing of a verified petition, the court may issue a temporary
restraining order, without notice or bond, and may preliminarily and
permanently enjoin the violation. If it is established that the person has
violated or is violating the injunction, the Court may punish the offender
for contempt of court. Proceedings under this Section shall be in addition
to, and not in lieu of, all other remedies and penalties provided by this Act.
(b) If any person practices as a dietitian nutritionist or
holds himself or herself out as such without having a valid license under
this Act, then any licensee, any interested party, or any person injured
thereby may, in addition to the Secretary, petition for relief as provided
in subsection (a) of this Section.
(c) Whenever in the opinion of the Department any person violates any
provision of this Act, the Department may issue a rule to show cause why an
order to cease and desist should be entered against him or her. The rule shall
clearly set forth the grounds relied upon the Department and shall provide
a period of 7 days from the date of the rule to file an answer to the
satisfaction of the Department. Failure to answer to the satisfaction of
the Department shall cause in order to cease and desist to be issued
