(225 ILCS 110/28.5)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2028)
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 is 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.
