(from Ch. 111, par. 2421)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2022)
Any person affected by a final administrative decision of the
Department may have such decision reviewed judicially by the circuit court
of the county wherein such person resides. If the plaintiff in the review
proceeding is not a resident of this State, the venue shall be in Sangamon
County. The provisions of the Administrative Review Law, and all amendments
and modifications thereof, and the rules adopted pursuant thereto, shall
apply to and govern all proceedings for the judicial review of final administrative
decisions of the Department hereunder. The term "administrative decision"
is defined as in Section 3-101 of the Code of Civil Procedure.
The Department shall not be required to certify any record to the court
or file any answer in court or otherwise appear in any court in a Judicial
review proceeding, unless and until the Department has received from the plaintiff payment of the costs of
furnishing and certifying the record which costs shall be determined by the Department. Exhibits shall be certified
without cost. Failure on the part of the plaintiff to file a receipt in
court is grounds for dismissal of the action.
