A.  Upon the refusal of the department to grant or renew a license or upon the revocation of a license, the applicant or licensee having been refused a license or renewal, or having had a license revoked shall have the right to appeal such action to the division of administrative law by submitting a written request for an appeal to the department within thirty calendar days after receipt of the notification of the refusal to grant a license, or within fifteen calendar days after receipt of the notification of the refusal to renew or revocation. The department shall notify the division of administrative law within ten calendar days of receipt of a request for an appeal and the appeal hearing shall be held no later than thirty calendar days after such notice, with an administrative ruling no later than fifteen calendar days from the date of a hearing for revocation or refusal to renew a license, or within thirty days from the date of a hearing for the denial of a new license. This provision shall in no way preclude the right of the party to seek relief through mandamus suit against the department, as provided by law.

B.  Notwithstanding any law, rule, regulation, or provision to the contrary, including but not limited to R.S. 49:964(A)(2), the department shall be entitled to seek judicial review from any final decision or order rendered by the division of administrative law in any appeal hearing arising under this Part. The venue of judicial review shall be the district court of the parish in which the licensee is located.
