Illinois Compiled Statutes 740 ILCS 40 Controlled Substance and Cannabis Nuisance Act. Section 6

    (740 ILCS 40/6) (from Ch. 100 1/2, par. 19)

    Sec. 6. If the existence of the nuisance is established, the court shall enter a judgment perpetually restraining all persons from maintaining or permitting such nuisance, and from using the place in which the same is maintained for any purpose, except a purpose that the court designates, for a period of one year thereafter, unless such judgment is sooner vacated, as hereinafter provided, and perpetually restraining the defendant from maintaining any such nuisance within the jurisdiction of the court. No injunction shall be entered against an owner, nor shall an order be entered that any place be closed or kept closed, if it appears that the owner or his or her agent has in good faith endeavored to prevent the nuisance or did not have knowledge of the nuisance. An owner or agent who has complied with the recommendations requested by the State's Attorney under Section 3.1 of this Act shall be deemed to have endeavored in good faith to prevent the nuisance. While the judgment remains in effect, such place shall be in the custody of the court. An order of abatement shall also be entered as a part of such judgment, which order shall direct the sheriff of the county to remove from such place all fixtures and movable property used in conducting or aiding or abetting such nuisance, and to sell the same in the manner provided by law for the sale of chattels in the enforcement of a judgment for the payment of money, and to close such place against its use for any purpose, except a purpose that the court designates, and to keep it closed for a period of one year unless sooner released as hereinafter provided. The sheriff's fees for removing and selling the movable property shall be taxed as a part of the costs, and shall be the same as those for levying upon and selling like property in the enforcement of a judgment for the payment of money. For closing the place and keeping it closed, the court shall allow a reasonable fee to be taxed as part of the costs. Nothing in this Act contained shall authorize any relief respecting any other place than that named in the complaint.
