§ 2500. Director not required to pay costs. Neither the Director nor the State of Illinois shall be required to furnish any
bond, or to make a deposit for or pay any costs of any court or the fees of any of
its officers in any judicial proceedings in pursuance to the provisions of this Act;
provided, further, that whenever enforcement or collection of any judgment liability
created by this Act, is levied by any sheriff or coroner upon any personal property,
and such property is claimed by any person other than the defendant or is claimed
by the defendant as exempt from levy by virtue of the exemption laws of this State,
then it shall be the duty of the person making such claim to give notice in writing
of his or her claim and of his or her intention to prosecute the same, to the sheriff
or coroner within 10 days after the making of the levy; on receiving such notice
the sheriff or coroner shall proceed in accordance with the provisions of Part 2 of
Article XII of the Code of Civil Procedure, as amended; 1 the giving of such notice within the 10 day period shall be a condition precedent
to any judicial action against the sheriff or coroner for wrongfully levying, seizing
or selling the property and any such person who fails to give such notice within the
time shall be forever barred from bringing any judicial action against such sheriff
or coroner for injury or damages to or conversion of the property.
