Section 2-26-6

Injunctive proceedings to restrain persons selling, processing, cleaning, etc., seed without permit.

Any person required to secure a permit as provided under Section 2-26-5 who fails or refuses to apply for and obtain such a permit and pay the fee therefor may be restrained from engaging in the sale of agricultural, vegetable, flower, tree, shrub or herb seed or from operating a seed cleaning, shelling, delinting or processing plant. In addition to the penalty provided in this article, the Commissioner of Agriculture and Industries may file a petition in the circuit court for a temporary restraining order or permanent injunction or both; and, for cause shown, the court shall have jurisdiction to restrain or enjoin any person from engaging in the sale of seed without securing the permit as required under this article. Such temporary restraining order or permanent injunction shall be issued without bond.
