Upon a showing that a person has engaged in or is about to engage in, an act or practice constituting a violation of the provisions of this chapter, a restraining order, preliminary or permanent injunction, or writ of mandamus shall be granted, and a receiver or a conservator may be appointed for the defendant or the defendant’s assets. The court shall not require the director to post a bond in an action brought under this chapter.
(2)  If the director finds that a person has violated or that there is reasonable cause to believe that a person is about to violate the provisions of section 26-2711, Idaho Code, the director may order the person to cease and desist from the violation unless and until the person is issued a license.
(3)  Within thirty (30) days after an order is issued under subsection (2) of this section, the person to whom the order is directed may file with the director an application for a hearing on the order. If the director fails to commence a hearing within fifteen (15) business days after that application is filed or within a longer period to which the person consents, the order shall be considered rescinded. Upon the conclusion of the hearing, the director shall affirm, modify, or rescind the order. A person to whom an order is directed under subsection (2) of this section may petition for judicial review of the order in conformance with the provisions of chapter 52, title 67, Idaho Code.
(4)  If, after notice and the opportunity for a hearing, the director determines that a licensee or a subject person of a licensee has violated or is violating, or that there is reasonable cause to believe that a licensee or subject person of a licensee is about to violate this chapter or another applicable law, or that a licensee or subject person of a licensee has engaged or participated or is engaging or participating, or that there is a reasonable cause to believe that a licensee or subject person of a licensee is about to engage or participate in an unsafe or unsound act with respect to the business of that licensee, the director may order that licensee or subject person to cease and desist from the action or violation. The order may require the licensee or subject person to take affirmative action to correct any condition resulting from the action or violation.
(5)  If the director determines that any of the factors set forth in subsection (4) of this section are true with respect to a licensee or subject person of a licensee and that the action or violation is likely to cause the insolvency of or substantial dissipation of the assets or earnings of the licensee; is likely to seriously weaken the condition of the licensee; or is likely to otherwise seriously prejudice the interests of the licensee before the completion of proceedings conducted under subsection (4) of this section, the director may order the licensee or subject person to cease and desist from that action or violation. The order may require the licensee or subject person to take affirmative action to correct any condition resulting from the action or violation.
(6)  Within thirty (30) days after an order is issued under subsection (5) of this section, the licensee or subject person of a licensee to whom the order is directed may file with the director an application for a hearing on the order.
