(225 ILCS 130/80)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2024)
Cease and desist order; injunctions.
(a) If a person violates a provision of this Act, the
Secretary, in the name of the People of the State of
Illinois through the Attorney General of the State of
Illinois, or the State's Attorney of a 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 in court, the court
may issue a temporary restraining order without notice or
bond and may preliminarily and permanently enjoin the
violation. If it is established that the registrant has
violated or is violating the injunction, the court may punish
the offender for contempt of court. Proceedings under this
Section shall be in addition to, and not in lieu of, all
other remedies and penalties provided by this Act.
(b) If a person holds himself or herself out as a surgical assistant
or surgical technologist without
being registered under this Act, then any registrant under this Act,
party, or person injured thereby, in
addition to the Secretary or State's Attorney, may
petition for relief as provided in subsection (a) of this
(c) If the Department determines that a person violated a
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 him or her. The rule shall clearly set forth the
grounds relied upon by the Department and shall provide a period
of 7 days from the date of the rule to file an answer to the
satisfaction of the Department. Failure to answer to the
satisfaction of the Department shall cause an order to cease and
desist to be issued immediately.
