Section 34-16-13 - Violations; penalties.

After January 1, 1999, any person who undertakes or attempts to undertake the practice of interpreting or transliterating for remuneration among consumers without first having procured a valid license or permit, or who knowingly presents or files false information with the board for the purpose of obtaining a license or permit, or who violates this chapter shall be guilty of a Class C misdemeanor. A person who is not licensed or permitted may not bring or maintain an action to enforce any contract for interpreting or transliterating services which he or she entered into in violation of this chapter. Whenever it appears to the board that any interpreter or transliterator has violated or is about to violate this chapter, the board may, in its own name, petition the circuit court of the county where the violation occurred or is about to occur to issue a temporary restraining order enjoining the violation.
