Upon a proper showing, a permanent or temporary injunction, restraining order or writ of mandamus shall be granted or a receiver or conservator may be appointed for the defendantís assets.

(2) The director may enter into consent orders at any time with any person to resolve any matter arising under ORS 717.200 to 717.320, 717.900 and 717.905. A consent order must be signed by the person to whom it is issued or a duly authorized representative, and must indicate agreement to the terms contained in the consent order. A consent order need not constitute an admission by any person that any provision of ORS 717.200 to 717.320, 717.900 and 717.905, or of any rule or order adopted or issued under ORS 717.200 to 717.320, 717.900 and 717.905, has been violated, nor need it constitute a finding by the director that the person has violated any provision of ORS 717.200 to 717.320, 717.900 and 717.905, or of any rule or order adopted or issued under ORS 717.200 to 717.320, 717.900 and 717.905.

(3) Notwithstanding the issuance of a consent order, the director may seek civil or criminal penalties or compromise civil penalties concerning matters encompassed by the consent order, unless the consent order by its terms expressly precludes the director from so doing. [1999 c.571 §22]
