    Sec. 311.1. Injunction proceedings.
    (a) Upon the refusal or neglect of any society to make the annual report, as provided in this amendatory Act, or in case any such society shall exceed its powers or shall conduct its business fraudulently or is not carrying out its contracts in good faith or shall be 30 days in arrears in the payment of death or disability claims, endowments or annuities after the same have been allowed by the board of directors or other person or persons whose duty it is to pass upon such claims and after establishment of the interest and competency of the payee to receive, receipt and acquit for payment, provided that such claim shall be approved or disapproved within 60 days after receipt of due proof of loss or death or, after one year's existence, shall have a membership of less than 500 or shall determine to discontinue business or shall fail to comply with any of the provisions of this amendatory Act, the Director shall immediately commence, or cause to be commenced, an action against such society under Article XIII of this Code and to enjoin the same from carrying on any business, and an injunction may be granted, upon proper showing by the Director, in any circuit court in this State; provided, however, that no injunction against any society within this State or application for or appointment of a receiver or action to prevent any society from carrying on business in this State shall be made or granted by any court except on the application of the Director and after written notice duly made and served upon the chief executive officer of such society within this State, or, if incorporated under the laws of another state, then such notice may be served by sending the same to the president or secretary of the society by registered mail at the home office of the society, and a full hearing before such court, whether the party seeking such relief be the State, member of such society or any other person whatsoever.
    (b) If the court shall find that such society so enjoined was in default as charged and the violation complained of shall have been corrected and the injunction dissolved, the society may continue in business provided it shall have satisfied the Director that it has paid the costs of the action. Any officer, agent or person acting for any society or subordinate body thereof within this State and who shall transact any business for such society contrary to the provisions of such injunction or prohibition while such society shall be so enjoined or prohibited from doing business pursuant to this amendatory Act shall be deemed guilty of a Class A misdemeanor.
