(55 ILCS 5/3-8017)
(from Ch. 34, par. 3-8017)
Enforcement of orders.
If any provision of this
Division or any order of the Merit Commission is violated by any person,
regardless of whether that person's employment is under the jurisdiction of
the Division, the Commission may apply to the circuit court for relief by
injunction, mandamus or any other proper relief. The State's Attorney of
the county where the violation occurred shall prosecute such action.
Whenever the State's Attorney for the county where a violation is alleged
to have occurred refuses to prosecute the action, or fails to begin to
prosecute such action within 30 days after the date the Commission brings
the matter to his attention, the Commission may retain special counsel of
its own choice to prosecute such action.
