(225 ILCS 335/10)
(from Ch. 111, par. 7510)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2026)
Injunctive relief; order to cease and desist.
(1) If any person violates the provisions of this Act, the Secretary,
through the Attorney General of the State of Illinois or the State's Attorney
of any county in which a violation is alleged to have occurred, may in the name of
the People of the State of Illinois petition for an order enjoining such
violation or for an order enforcing compliance with this Act. Upon the
filing of a verified petition in such court, the court may issue a
temporary restraining order, without notice or bond, and may preliminarily
and permanently enjoin such violation, and if it is established that such
person 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.
(2) If any person shall practice as a
licensee or hold himself or herself out as a
licensee without being licensed
under the provisions of this Act, then any person licensed
under this Act,
any interested party or any person injured thereby may, in addition to the Secretary, petition for
relief as provided in subsection (1) of this Section.
(4) Whenever, in the opinion of the Department, any 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. The rule shall clearly set forth the grounds relied upon by the Department and shall provide a period of 7 days after the date of issuance 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 forthwith.
