§ 100. Violations; injunction; cease and desist order.
(a) If any person violates the provisions 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 any county in which the violation is alleged
to have occurred, petition for an order enjoining the 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 the person has violated or is violating the injunction,
the court may punish the offender for contempt of court. Proceedings under this Section are in addition to all other remedies and penalties
provided by this Act.
(b) If any person holds himself or herself out as being a licensed genetic counselor
under this Act and is not licensed to do so, then any licensed genetic counselor,
interested party, or any person injured thereby may petition for relief as provided
in subsection (a) of this Section.
(c) 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
allow at least 7 days from the date of the rule to file an answer satisfactory to
the Department. Failure to answer to the satisfaction of the Department shall cause an order to
cease and desist to be issued.
