Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

815 ILCS 120/5

    (815 ILCS 120/5) (from Ch. 17, par. 855)
    Sec. 5. (a) Subject to the limitation imposed by subsection (b), any person who has been aggrieved as a result of a violation of this Act may bring an individual action in the circuit court of the county in which the particular financial institution involved is located or doing business.
    Upon a finding that a financial institution has committed a violation of this Act, the court may award actual damages, and may in its discretion award court costs.
    (b) If the same events or circumstances would constitute the basis for an action under this Act or an action under any other Act, the aggrieved person may elect between the remedies proposed by the two Acts but may not bring actions, either administrative or judicial, under more than one of the two Acts in relation to those same events or circumstances.
    (c) An action to enjoin any person subject to this Act from engaging in activity in violation of this Act may be maintained in the name of the people of the State of Illinois by the Attorney General or by the State's Attorney of the county in which the action is brought. This remedy shall be in addition to other remedies provided for any violation of this Act.
