Disclaimer 2011 Annual Report to the Governor

Subsequent to the Department's attempt to revoke Stephen Weiner's license in 2011, Mr. Weiner filed a complaint for administrative review. The Circuit Court of Cook County reversed the Department's order revoking Mr. Weiner's license finding that the sanction of revocation was overly harsh and inappropriate. The Department then issued a suspension order temporarily suspending Mr. Weiner’s license, which has now expired.  As of December 2014, the Department has reinstated Mr. Weiner's license, and he is authorized to conduct the business of insurance in the State of Illinois.  The Department further erred in its 2011 Report to the Governor when it stated that Mr. Weiner had been convicted of bribing a mayor. The conviction was for mail fraud and not bribery.
