Upon cessation of gaming operations, a former licensee shall furnish, upon the demand of the commission, books, papers, and other records as necessary for the commission to audit the ceased gaming operation. A former licensee shall maintain all books, papers, and other records for a period of three years after the cessation of gaming operations. However, if a civil action or criminal proceeding relating to the former licensee is pending, or if an administrative adjudication or judicial review of an administrative adjudication relating to the former licensee is pending, the former licensee shall maintain all books, papers, and other records until the matter has been finally determined.
If a person disobeys a subpoena or subpoena duces tecum, or refuses to testify as directed by a subpoena, the commission shall request the prosecutor of the county in which the person resides to apply to the court of common pleas for an order compelling the person to attend or to produce tangible evidence, or to testify, as directed by the subpoena or subpoena duces tecum. The court shall treat the application as if it were disobedience to comply with a subpoena or subpoena duces tecum issued by the court or a refusal to testify in the court.
