(35 ILCS 120/5d) (from Ch. 120, par. 444d)
    Sec. 5d. The Department is not required to furnish any bond nor to make a deposit for or pay any costs or fees of any court or officer thereof in any judicial proceedings under this Act. Whenever a certified copy of a judgment or order for attachment, issued from any court for the enforcement or collection of any liability created by this Act, is levied by any sheriff or coroner upon any personal property, and such property is claimed by any person other than the judgment debtor or the defendant in the attachment, or is claimed by the judgment debtor or defendant in the attachment as exempt from enforcement of a judgment thereon by virtue of the exemption laws of this State, then the person making such claim shall give notice in writing of his or her claim and of his or her intention to prosecute the claim, to the sheriff or coroner within 10 days after the making of the levy. On receiving such notice, the sheriff or coroner shall proceed in accordance with Part 2 of Article XII of the Code of Civil Procedure, as amended. The giving of such notice within the 10 day period is a condition precedent to any judicial action against the sheriff or coroner for wrongfully levying, seizing or selling the property and any such person who fails to give such notice within that time is barred from bringing any judicial action against such sheriff or coroner for injury or damages to or conversion of the property.
