Whenever it appears to the commissioner that any person, including a controlling person of an offeror or target company, has engaged or is about to engage in any act or practice constituting a violation of sections 80B.01 to 80B.13 or any rule or order hereunder, the commissioner (1) may issue and cause to be served upon any person violating any of the provisions of sections 80B.01 to 80B.13 an order requiring the person guilty thereof to cease and desist therefrom; and (2) may bring an action in the district court of the appropriate county to enjoin the acts or practices and to enforce compliance with sections 80B.01 to 80B.13 or any rule or order hereunder, or may refer the matter to the attorney general or the county attorney of the appropriate county. Upon a proper showing, the court may grant a permanent or temporary injunction or restraining order and may order rescission of any sales or purchases of securities determined to be unlawful under sections 80B.01 to 80B.13 or any rule or order hereunder. The court may not require the commissioner to post a bond.
