§47-11B-8. Notice of denial, refusal or revocation of license; judicial review thereof.
Whenever the commissioner shall deny or refuse to issue a license or shall revoke any license, he shall make and enter an order to that effect and shall cause a copy of such order to be served in person or by certified mail, return receipt requested, on the applicant or person licensed by him, as the case may be. Such order shall be accompanied by findings of fact and conclusions of law upon which such order was made and entered. Any person adversely affected by an order made and entered by the board is entitled to judicial review thereof. Such judicial review shall be in the circuit court for the county in which the sale is to be or is being conducted. The judgment of the circuit court shall be final unless reversed, vacated or modified on appeal to the supreme court of appeals of West Virginia. Legal counsel and services for the commissioner in appeal proceedings in any circuit court and the supreme court of appeals shall be provided by the attorney general or his assistants, and in appeal proceedings in any circuit court by the prosecuting attorney of the county as well, all without additional compensation. The commissioner, with the written approval of the attorney general, may employ special counsel to represent the commissioner in a particular proceeding.
