Director may temporarily suspend license and remove terminal pending a hearing.

(1) After review and consideration, the director may temporarily suspend a license or addendum thereto issued pursuant to these rules pending a hearing upon suspension or revocation of the license, or issuance of a renewal thereof, when in the opinion of the director:
(a) The lottery retailer has obtained the license or addendum by fraud, trick, misrepresentation, concealment, or through inadvertence or mistake; or
(b) The lottery retailer has engaged in any act, practice or course of operation as would operate as a fraud or deceit on any person, or has employed any device, scheme or artifice to defraud any person; or
(c) The lottery retailer has violated, failed, or refused to comply with any of the provisions, requirements, limitations, or duties imposed by chapter 67.70 RCW and any amendments thereto or any rules adopted by the commission pursuant thereto; or
(d) Immediate cessation of the licensed activities by the lottery retailer is necessary for the protection or preservation of the welfare of the community within which these activities are being conducted.
(2) After review and consideration, if the director determines that a retailer's license shall be revoked or suspended, the lottery shall immediately remove all lottery terminals and material from the retailer's store(s), in order to prevent any financial loss or harm to the integrity of the lottery. The retailer shall have the right to appeal the decision of the director, and, if the retailer prevails in a final court action which is not appealed, the lottery shall bear the cost of reinstallation of the lottery terminal(s).
(3) Notice of such temporary suspension and/or terminal removal shall be served in accordance with WAC 10-08-110.
