A Notice of Intent/Opportunity for Hearing details allegations by the Division of
Institutions' Consumer Finance Section for violation(s) of the Ohio Revised Code
within its jurisdiction and gives a respondent notice of the right to an administrative
Final orders contain findings by the Consumer Finance Section and represent the
final disposition of a matter pending before the Division. All final orders of the
Division contain appeal rights to common pleas courts within a specific time period
as provided for in Ohio Revised Code Chapter 119.
“Termination orders” or a settlement agreement containing “provisions terminating
an order” may include termination of summary suspension orders, notices of opportunity
for hearings (NOHs) and, in rare instances, termination (or vacation) of a final
order. When an order is terminated, this means circumstances have changed
or new evidence has been found, and the Division no longer wishes to go forward
with the original action or has agreed to resolve a matter through an agreed upon
or “consent” order/agreement.
Even when an order is terminated, the fact remains that it was issued as a formal
adjudicative action of the Division. As a consequence, the subsequently terminated
order continues to be a public record and remains on the Division's web site along
with the termination order or settlement agreement.
The following administrative enforcement orders represent official action taken
by the Consumer Finance Section of the Division of Financial Institutions.
REMEMBER, a Notice of Intent/Opportunity for Hearing represents
an allegation by the Division. Just as in the judicial process, an allegation by
the Division will not necessarily result in a final order against the respondent.
Notices of Intent/Opportunity for Hearing are public records, but do not represent
the final determination in a pending matter.
