C.R.S. Section 35-77-108
Cease-and-desist orders


Intentionally left blank —Ed.


The commissioner may issue an order to cease and desist from violating this article 77 if the commissioner determines, based upon credible evidence, that:


A person is violating this article 77 or a rule adopted under this article 77; or


A person is violating section 35-77-104.


To issue a cease-and-desist order, the commissioner must set forth in the order the statutes or rules alleged to have been violated, the facts alleged to constitute the violation, and a requirement that the alleged violations cease and desist.


To protest a cease-and-desist order, a person must request within thirty days after the date of the order a hearing on the question of whether the person has violated this article 77 or a rule adopted under this article 77. If so requested, the commissioner shall hold a hearing.


A person aggrieved by a cease-and-desist order that has become final may seek judicial review of the order.


Intentionally left blank —Ed.


If a person fails to comply with a cease-and-desist order within twenty-four hours after being served with the order, the commissioner may bring a suit for a temporary restraining order and injunctive relief to prevent any further violation of this article 77 or a rule adopted under this article 77.


If the subject of a cease-and-desist order requests that the cease-and-desist order be stayed pending an approval of the order, a court shall not stay the cease-and-desist order until after a hearing has been held at which both parties have had an opportunity to appear.


A court shall give preference to matters brought before the court under this section over other matters on the calendar of the court.
