(1)The commissioner or the commissioner’s designee shall enforce this article.
(2)Whenever the commissioner has reasonable cause to believe a violation of any provision of this article or any rule promulgated pursuant to this article has occurred and immediate enforcement is deemed necessary, the commissioner may issue a cease-and-desist order, which may require any person to cease violating any provision of this article or any rule promulgated pursuant to this article. Such cease-and-desist order shall set forth the provisions alleged to have been violated, the facts alleged to have constituted the violation, and the requirement that all actions cease forthwith. At any time after service of the order to cease and desist, the person may request, at the person’s discretion, a hearing to be held within a reasonable period of time to determine whether such violation has occurred. Such hearing shall be conducted pursuant to article 4 of title 24, C.R.S., and shall be determined promptly.
(3)Whenever the commissioner possesses sufficient evidence satisfactory to him or her indicating that a person has engaged in or is about to engage in an act or practice constituting a violation of this article or any rule or order adopted pursuant to this article, the commissioner may apply to a court of competent jurisdiction to temporarily or permanently restrain or enjoin the act or practice in question and to enforce compliance with this article or any rule or order adopted pursuant to this article. In any such action, the commissioner shall not be required to plead or prove irreparable injury or the inadequacy of the remedy at law. Under no circumstances shall the court require the commissioner to post a bond.
