(625 ILCS 5/18c-2205)
(from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 18c-2205)
Stay of Action Pending Judicial Review.
(1) Commission Orders Not Stayed by Filing of Appeal.
The filing or pendency of a petition for judicial review
shall not of itself stay, suspend, restrain or enjoin the
operation of a rule, regulation, order or decision of the
(2) Power of Court to Stay Commission Orders.
During the pendency of a petition for judicial review the
reviewing court in its discretion may, except as provided in
this subsection, stay, suspend, restrain or enjoin, in whole
or in part, the operation of a Commission regulation or
order. No order staying, suspending, restraining or
enjoining a Commission regulation or order shall be made by the
court except upon 3 days' actual notice to the Commission
and the Attorney General and after hearing.
Where the Commission action relates to enforcement of this Chapter, the
reviewing court shall not stay, suspend, restrain or
enjoin the action of the Commission for a period longer than 180
days from the filing of the appeal; unless at the expiration of the initial
180 day period, the court finds that continuation is necessary for the
informed and just resolution of the issues; and unless the court does
continue the stay, suspension, restraint, or injunction in effect for one
or more definite periods of time not to exceed 180 days each.
(3) Bond Required. In case an action, regulation or order of the Commission
is stayed, suspended, restrained, or enjoined, the order of the court shall
not become effective until a bond shall first have been executed and filed
with and approved by the court, except as otherwise provided in this paragraph.
Where the order under review does not relate to enforcement of this law,
the court may, for good cause, waive the requirement of a bond.
