(225 ILCS 84/95)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2020)
    Sec. 95. Injunction; cease and desist order.
    (a) If any person, company, or corporation violates a provision of this Act, the Secretary may, in the name of the People of the State of Illinois and 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 in court, 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, company, or corporation 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 a person practices as an orthotist, prosthetist, or pedorthist or holds himself or herself out as an orthotist, prosthetist, or pedorthist without being licensed under the provisions of this Act, then any other licensed orthotist, prosthetist, or pedorthist, any interested party, or any person injured by the person may, in addition to the Secretary, petition for relief as provided in subsection (a) of this Section.
    (c) If a company or corporation holds itself out to provide orthotic, prosthetic, or pedorthic services without having an orthotist, prosthetist, or pedorthist licensed under the provisions of this Act on its staff to provide those services, then any other licensed orthotist, prosthetist, or pedorthist or any interested party or injured person may, in addition to the Secretary, petition for relief as provided in subsection (a) of this Section.
    (d) Whenever in the opinion of the Department a person, company, or corporation violates a provision of this Act, the Department may issue a rule to show cause why an order to cease and desist should not be entered against him, her, or it. The rule shall clearly set forth the grounds relied upon by 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 an order to cease and desist to be issued immediately.
