(a) Any person who violates this Article or any rule adopted pursuant to this Article
shall be guilty of a Class 2 misdemeanor for each offense.
(b) Whenever there exists reasonable cause to believe that any person has violated
this Article or rules adopted pursuant to this Article, the Secretary may request
the Attorney General to institute a civil action for injunctive relief to restrain
the violation. The Attorney General may institute such action in the name of the State upon relation
of the Department in the superior court of the county in which the violation occurred. Upon a determination by the court that the alleged violation of the provisions of
this Article or of rules adopted pursuant to this Article has occurred or is threatened,
the court shall grant the relief necessary to prevent or abate the violation or threatened
violation. Neither the institution of the action, nor any of the proceedings thereon shall
relieve any party to such proceedings from any penalty otherwise prescribed for violations
of this Article.
