§1488.  Cease and desist orders; injunctive relief

A.  In addition to or in lieu of the criminal penalties and administrative sanctions provided for in this Chapter, the board may issue an order to any person engaged in any activity, conduct, or practice constituting a violation of any provision of this Chapter or any rule or regulation adopted pursuant to this Chapter directing such person to cease and desist from such activity, conduct, or practice.  Such order shall be issued in the name of the state under the official seal of the board.

B.  If the person to whom the board directs a cease and desist order does not cease and desist the prohibited activity, conduct, or practice within two days of service of such order by certified mail, the board may seek a writ of injunction in any court of competent jurisdiction and proper venue enjoining such person from engaging in the activity, conduct, or practice.

C.  Upon proper showing of the board that such person or firm has engaged in any activity, conduct, or practice prohibited by this Chapter, the court shall issue a temporary restraining order restraining the person or firm from engaging in the unlawful activity, conduct, or practice, pending hearing on a preliminary injunction.  A permanent injunction shall issue after hearing commanding the cessation of the unlawful activity, conduct, or practice complained of, all without the necessity of the board having to give bond as usually required in such cases.  A temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction, or permanent injunction issued enjoining such person or firm shall not be subject to being released upon bond.
