Text Search


Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

10-59-14Injunction for performing activity without license or permit--Petition by secretary--Contents--Issuance--Hearing.

Any person who is required by law to obtain or maintain a license or permit issued or approved by the secretary to legally perform any act or engage in any form of business, who fails to obtain or maintain such license or permit or whose license or permit has been revoked and cancelled, may be enjoined from performing the act or engaging in the business. The secretary may petition a judge of the circuit court for the county where the licensed or permitted activity takes place for a temporary restraining order restraining that activity. The petition shall be verified by the secretary and set forth reasons why the petition should be granted. The petition shall include a certification by the secretary that a license or permit has not been obtained or maintained or has been revoked or cancelled after notice and hearing. Upon receipt of the petition and verification that the petition complies with this section, the circuit court judge shall issue a temporary restraining order restraining the person from engaging in the activity. The order shall have the effect of a temporary restraining order under chapter 21-8. With at least three days notice to the parties, a hearing shall be held within five days from the granting of the temporary restraining order. The person being restrained shall be given an opportunity to show compliance with all lawful requirements for obtaining the license or permit. If the person shows compliance with all lawful requirements for obtaining the license or permit, including any bonding requirements, the temporary restraining order shall be dissolved. If the person does not show compliance with all lawful requirements for obtaining the license or permit, he shall be enjoined from engaging in the activity until all lawful requirements for obtaining the license or permit are met or further order of the court.
