§68.1. Notice of lis pendens; actions involving gaming
A. The division, through its legal counsel, may apply to the hearing officer for the issuance of a notice of lis pendens. A notice of lis pendens shall issue upon the sworn written application of the division showing facts establishing that there are reasonable grounds to believe that a licensee has violated the Louisiana Gaming Control Law. The notice of lis pendens shall specify the facts establishing that there are reasonable grounds to believe there is a violation of the Louisiana Gaming Control Law. The notice of lis pendens shall be filed with the board, which shall maintain a separate lis pendens index as a public record.
B. Any sale, assignment, transfer, pledge, or disposition regulated by R.S. 27:68 that takes place after the filing of a notice of lis pendens shall render the party to whom the sale, assignment, transfer, pledge, or disposition is made responsible for any sanction subsequently imposed upon the licensee based upon the conduct described in the notice of lis pendens.
C. If, after a hearing, there is a determination that the grounds for the lis pendens do not exist, the lis pendens shall be canceled and be of no further effect.
D. The provisions of this Section shall not be construed to limit any other remedy provided by law.
