V C Section 11111 Notice and Hearing Before Cancellation Suspension or Revocation of License

Notice and Hearing Before Cancellation, Suspension or Revocation of License

11111.  (a) Every licensee under this chapter is entitled to notice and hearing prior to cancellation, suspension, or revocation of the license by the department, except that the department shall immediately cancel the license without a hearing for failure of the licensee to meet and maintain the requirements of paragraph (1), (3), or (4) of subdivision (a) of Section 11102, or Section 11103 or 11103.1, or paragraph (4), (5), or (6) of subdivision (a) of Section 11104, or paragraph (4), (5), or (6) of subdivision (a) of Section 11104.3, or Section 11110.2.

(b) The notice and hearings provided for in this chapter shall be pursuant to Chapter 5 (commencing with Section 11500) of Part 1 of Division 3 of Title 2 of the Government Code.

(c) Any action of the department in suspending, canceling, or revoking, or failing to renew a license may be reviewed by any court of competent jurisdiction.

(d) The department may, pending a hearing, temporarily suspend the license or permit of any person licensed under this chapter for not more than 30 days if the director finds that the action is required in the public interest. In that case, a hearing shall be held and a decision issued within 30 days after notice of temporary suspension.

(e) The suspension, expiration, or cancellation of a license issued under this chapter does not preclude the filing of an accusation for the revocation or suspension of the suspended, expired, or canceled license as provided in Section 11110, and does not invalidate or otherwise preclude a decision by the department to suspend or revoke the license. That determination may be considered in granting or refusing to grant any subsequent license authorized by this chapter to the same licensee, or to any partner, officer, director, or stockholder of the same licensee.
