3 verified petition, the court, if satisfied by affidavit or
4 otherwise, that such person is or has been practicing in
5 violation of this Act may enter a temporary restraining order
6 or preliminary injunction, without bond, enjoining the
7 defendant from such further activity. A copy of the verified

22 interest, as required by any tax Act administered by the
23 Illinois Department of Revenue, until such time as the
