(225 ILCS 15/27.2)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2027)
Cease and desist order.
If any person violates the provisions
of this Act,
the Secretary, in the name of the People of the State of Illinois, through the
Attorney General or the State's Attorney of the county in which the violation
alleged to have occurred, may petition for an order enjoining the violation or
for an order enforcing compliance with this Act. Upon the filing of a verified
petition, the court with appropriate jurisdiction may issue a temporary
restraining order, without notice or bond, and may preliminarily and
permanently enjoin the violation. If it is established that the person has
violated or is violating the injunction, the court may punish the offender for
contempt of court. Proceedings under this Section are in addition to, and not
in lieu of, all other remedies and penalties provided by this Act.
Whenever, in the opinion of the Department, a person violates any provision
of this Act, the Department may issue a rule to show cause why an order to
cease and desist should not be entered against that person. The rule shall
clearly set forth the grounds relied upon by the Department and shall allow at
least 7 days from the date of the rule to file an answer satisfactory to the
Department. Failure to answer to the satisfaction of the Department shall
cause an order to cease and desist to be issued.
