    I guess if WIAA’s members didn’t violate the law, they wouldn’t have to worry about where their hearing was.

      The real issue for the honest agent will arise if he is accused, not given a fair and unbiased venue, railroaded by the judge, jury and executioner, and he has to pay for the proceedings in addition to fine and his own defense costs all to the DOI. The DOI is setting up an agent pays (for his own defense if he wins) and not a loser pays scenario.

      The issue is not that WIAA opposes the proposal because our members are doing bad things, but about the process. I am sure you would not like to be accused of some wrong doing and be told by your legal counsel that should you loose your case, you might be faced with large investigation costs and DOI attorney fees and therefore you would be better off making a settlement.

      Would it be acceptable to you if when you got a speeding ticket from a CHP officer your case was tried by of a CHP staff judge?

    What happened to due process? So we will have the Comissioner decide which agents to go after or not, and then people in his employ investigate, present the case to another person in his employ who decides the outcome and who pays for all the expense. Isn’t the conflict of interest apparent to anyone who looks at this?
