§ 100. Injunctions; cease and desist orders.
(a) 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 for an order enjoining the violation or for an order enforcing
compliance with this Act. Upon the filing of a verified petition, the court 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 shall be in addition to, and not in lieu of, all
other remedies and penalties provided by this Act.
(b) If any person provides, offers to provide, attempts to provide or holds himself
or herself out as qualified, licensed, or able to provide medical nutrition therapy
or holds oneself out as licensed or qualified to practice dietetics and nutrition
or holds oneself out as a licensed dietitian nutritionist or uses words or letters
in connection with the person's name in violation of Section 80 without having a valid
license under this Act, then any licensee, 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 be entered against him or her. The rule shall clearly set forth the grounds relied upon 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 in order to
cease and desist to be issued immediately.
