(425 ILCS 35/2.3)
Consumer distributors and retailers.
No person may act as a consumer distributor or retailer or advertise or use any title implying that the person is a consumer distributor or retailer unless registered with the Office of the State Fire Marshal. No consumer fireworks may be distributed, sold, transferred, or provided free of charge to an individual who has not been issued a permit in accordance with Section 2.2 of this Act or has not registered with the Office of the State Fire Marshal in accordance with this Section. No person may sell to a single individual a quantity of consumer fireworks exceeding 499 pounds without prior approval by the Office of the State Fire Marshal. The State Fire Marshal, in the name of the People, through the Attorney General, the State's Attorney of any county, any resident of the State, or any legal entity within the State may apply for injunctive relief in any court to enjoin any person who has not registered from distributing or selling consumer fireworks. Upon filing a verified petition in court, the court, if satisfied by affidavit, or otherwise, that the person is or has been distributing in violation of this Act, may enter a temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction, without bond, enjoining the defendant from further activity. A copy of the verified complaint shall be served upon the defendant and the proceedings are to be conducted as in other civil cases. The court may enter a judgment permanently enjoining a defendant from further unregistered activity if it is established that the defendant has been or is distributing in violation of this Act. In case of violation of any injunctive order or judgment entered under this Section, the court may summarily try and punish the offender for contempt of court. Injunctive proceedings are in addition to all penalties and other remedies in this Act.
