(775 ILCS 5/10-103)
(from Ch. 68, par. 10-103)
Circuit court actions pursuant to election.
(A) If an
election is made under Section 8B-102, the Department shall authorize and
not later than 30 days after the entry of the administrative closure order by the Commission the Attorney General
shall commence and maintain a civil action on behalf of the aggrieved
party in a circuit court of Illinois seeking relief under this Section.
Venue for such civil action shall be determined under Section 8-111(A)(1).
(B) Any aggrieved party with respect to the issues to be determined in
a civil action under this Section may intervene as of right in that civil action.
(C) In a civil action under this Section, if the court finds that a
civil rights violation
has occurred or is about to occur the court may grant as relief any relief
which a court could grant with respect to such civil rights violation
in a civil action under Section 10-102. Any relief so granted that
would accrue to an aggrieved party in a civil action commenced by that
aggrieved party under Section 10-102 shall also accrue to that aggrieved
party in a civil action under this Section. If monetary relief is
sought for the benefit of an aggrieved party who does not intervene in the
civil action, the court shall not award such relief if that aggrieved
party has not complied with discovery orders entered by the court.
