Section 5727.58 | Quo warranto proceedings.


If any public utility fails to make and file the excise or franchise reports or returns required by law, or to pay the penalties provided by law for failure to make and file such reports or returns for a period of ninety days after the time prescribed by law, the attorney general, on the request of the tax commissioner, shall commence an action in quo warranto in the court of appeals of the county in which such public utility has its principal place of business to forfeit and annul its privileges and franchises. If the court is satisfied that any such public utility is in default, it shall render judgment ousting such public utility from the exercise of its privileges and franchises within this state, and shall otherwise proceed as provided in sections 2733.01 to 2733.39, inclusive, of the Revised Code.
