Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

Violations - Injunction - Cease and desist order.
A. If any
person violates the 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, 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.
B. If any person shall practice as a podiatric physician or hold himself
out as a podiatric physician without being licensed under the provisions of
this Act then any licensed podiatric physician, any interested party or any
person injured thereby may, in addition to the Secretary, petition for
relief as provided in subsection A of this Section.
C. 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 against him. 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
