Code of Virginia
Title 38.2. Insurance
Chapter 7. Antitrust Provisions

§ 38.2-702. Violations; procedure; cease and desist orders.

If the Commission has reason to believe that there is a violation of either § 38.2-700 or § 38.2-701, it shall issue and serve upon the insurer or the director concerned a statement of the charges and a notice of a hearing to be held at a time and place fixed in the notice, which shall not be less than thirty days after notice is served. The notice shall require the insurer or director to show cause why an order should not be issued directing the alleged offender to cease and desist from the violation. At such hearing, the insurer or director shall have an opportunity to be heard and to show cause why an order should not be issued requiring the insurer or director to cease and desist from the violation. In all matters in connection with such charges or hearing, the Commission shall have the jurisdiction, power, and authority granted or conferred upon it by Title 12.1, and, except as otherwise provided in this chapter, the procedure shall conform to and the right of appeal shall be the same as that provided in that title.
