(720 ILCS 570/507)
(from Ch. 56 1/2, par. 1507)
All rulings, final determinations, findings, and conclusions of
the Illinois State Police, the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation, and
the Department of Human Services under this Act are
conclusive decisions of the matters involved. Any person aggrieved by the
decision may obtain review of the decision pursuant to the provisions of
the Administrative Review Law, as amended and the rules adopted pursuant
thereto. Pending final decision on such review, the acts, orders
and rulings of the Department shall remain in full force and effect unless
modified or suspended by order of court pending final judicial decision.
Pending final decision on such review, the acts, orders, sanctions and rulings
of the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation regarding any registration
shall remain in full force and effect, unless stayed by order of court.
However, no stay of any decision of the administrative agency shall issue
unless the person aggrieved by the decision establishes by a preponderance
of the evidence that good cause exists therefor. In determining good cause,
the court shall find that the aggrieved party has established a substantial
likelihood of prevailing on the merits and that granting the stay will not
have an injurious effect on the general public. Good cause shall not be
established solely on the basis of hardships resulting from an inability
to engage in the registered activity pending a final judicial decision.
