3901.13 Hearing by superintendent.

Whenever the superintendent of insurance has reason to believe that there is a violation of section 3901.11 or 3901.12 of the Revised Code, he shall serve upon the insurers and directors a notice of a hearing before the superintendent to be held not less than thirty days after the service of such notice, and requiring such insurers and directors to show cause why an order should not be made by the superintendent directing such insurers and directors to cease and desist from such violation. All such hearings shall be conducted in accordance with sections 119.01 to 119.13 , inclusive, of the Revised Code.

If, upon such hearing, the superintendent finds that there has been a violation of section 3901.11 or 3901.12 of the Revised Code, he shall issue and cause to be served upon such insurers and directors an order reciting the facts found by him, setting forth the respects in which there has been a violation, and directing such insurers and directors to cease and desist from such violation.

Any such order of the superintendent shall be subject to judicial review in accordance with sections 119.01 to 119.13 , inclusive, of the Revised Code. A violation of any such order is, subject to said judicial review, deemed a violation as contemplated by section 3901.16 or 3901.17 of the Revised Code.
