1321.10 Rules and orders - procedure in case of violation - certified statements - prima-facie evidence.

In accordance with Chapter 119. of the Revised Code:

(A) The division of financial institutions may adopt rules and the superintendent of financial institutions may issue specific orders for the enforcement of sections 1321.01 to 1321.19 of the Revised Code. Every ruling, demand, requirement, and similar administrative act may be in the form of a written order. Every rule and order shall be a public record. After promulgation, a copy of every rule shall be mailed to all licensees.

(B) The division may, whenever it has reasonable cause to believe that any person has violated, is violating, or is threatening to or intends to violate sections 1321.01 to 1321.19 of the Revised Code, enter an order requiring the person to desist or to refrain from such violation; and an action may be brought on the relation of the superintendent to enjoin the person from continuing or engaging in such violation or from doing any acts in furtherance thereof. Such action shall be conducted under the direction and supervision of the attorney general. In any such action, an order or judgment may be entered awarding such preliminary or final injunction as is deemed proper. In addition to all other means provided for the enforcement of a restraining order or injunction, the court in which such action is brought may impound and appoint a receiver for the property and business of the defendants including books, papers, documents, and records pertaining thereto or so much thereof as the court finds reasonably necessary to prevent further violations of sections 1321.01 to 1321.19 of the Revised Code, through or by means of the use of said property and business. Such receiver, when appointed and qualified, has such powers and duties as to custody, collection, administration, winding up, and liquidation of the property and business as may be conferred upon the receiver by the court.

(C) Upon application of any person, the division may certify, under the seal of the superintendent, a statement relative to any matter that is the subject of public examination and disclosure. The division may likewise furnish under the seal of the superintendent a certified copy of any order issued by the division, and in any court such certified statements and such certified copies are prima-facie evidence of the facts disclosed therein or of the making of such order.
