(735 ILCS 5/11-103)
(from Ch. 110, par. 11-103)
The court in its discretion, may before entering a
restraining order or a preliminary injunction, require the applicant to
give bond in such sum, upon such condition and with such security as may
be deemed proper by the court, for the payment of such costs
and damages as may be incurred or suffered by any party who is found to
have been wrongfully enjoined or restrained.
No such bond shall be required of any governmental office or agency.
A surety upon a bond or undertaking under Article XI of this
Act submits to
the jurisdiction of the court and irrevocably appoints the clerk of the
court as the surety's agent upon whom any papers affecting the surety's liability on the
bond or undertaking may be served. Such liability may be enforced on
motion without the necessity of an independent action. The motion and
such notice of motion as the court prescribes may be served on the clerk
of the court who shall forthwith mail copies to the persons giving the
security if their addresses are known.
