(225 ILCS 430/24)
(from Ch. 111, par. 2425)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2022)
Injunctions; cease and desist orders.
If any person violates
a provision of this Act, the Secretary
may, 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 the county in which the violation is alleged to have occurred, petition an order enjoining such 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
such person has violated or is violating the injunction, the court may summarily
try and 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.
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 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.
