(805 ILCS 185/25)
Suspension, revocation or discipline of certificate of registration.
(a) The Department may suspend, revoke, or otherwise discipline the certificate of registration of a professional limited liability company for any of the following reasons:
(1) the revocation or suspension of the license to
practice the profession of any officer, manager, member, agent, or employee not promptly removed or discharged by the professional limited liability company;
(2) unethical professional conduct on the part of any
officer, manager, member, agent, or employee not promptly removed or discharged by the professional limited liability company;
(3) the death of the last remaining member;
(4) upon finding that the holder of the certificate
has failed to comply with the provisions of this Act or the regulations prescribed by the Department; or
(5) the failure to file a return, to pay the tax,
penalty, or interest shown in a filed return, or to pay any final assessment of tax, penalty, or interest, as required by a tax Act administered by the Illinois Department of Revenue, until such time as the requirements of any such tax Act are satisfied.
(b) Before any certificate of registration is suspended or revoked, the holder shall be given written notice of the proposed action and the reasons for the proposed action and shall be provided a public hearing by the Department with the right to produce testimony and other evidence concerning the charges made. The notice shall also state the place and date of the hearing, which shall be at least 10 days after service of the notice.
(c) All orders of the Department denying an application for a certificate of registration or suspending or revoking a certificate of registration or imposing a civil penalty shall be subject to judicial review pursuant to the Administrative Review Law.
(d) The proceedings for judicial review shall be commenced in the circuit court of the county in which the party applying for review is located. If the party is not currently located in Illinois, the venue shall be in Sangamon County. The Department shall not be required to certify any record to the court or file any answer in court or otherwise appear in any court in a judicial review proceeding, unless and until the Department has received from the plaintiff payment of the costs of furnishing and certifying the record, which costs shall be determined by the Department. Exhibits shall be certified without cost. Failure on the part of the plaintiff to file a receipt in court is grounds for dismissal of the action.
