Office of the Revisor of Statutes


The commissioner, or a department employee designated by the commissioner, may issue an order to cease a program or instructor's activity if continuation of the activity would result in an immediate risk to public safety.


An order issued under this part is effective for a maximum of 72 hours.


In conjunction with the issuance of the cease and desist order, the commissioner may post a sign to cease an activity until the cease and desist order is lifted and the sign is removed by the commissioner.


To enjoin the violation after the 72 hours has expired, the commissioner must either:


seek injunctive relief in a district court in Ramsey County or, at the commissioner's discretion, in a district court in the county in which the violation occurred; or


pursue other administrative action as provided in this part.
