< > Effective - 28 Aug 1996 bottom

  622.260.  Investigation of acts or omissions by division — complaints made to division, form — division's response to complaint, order. — 1.  The division may, of its own motion, investigate or make inquiry, in a manner to be determined by it, as to any act or thing done or omitted to be done by any common carrier subject to its supervision, and the division shall make such inquiry in regard to any act or thing done or omitted to be done by any such carrier, person or corporation in violation of any provision of law or in violation of any order or decision of the division.

  2.  Complaints may be made to the division by any person or corporation aggrieved, by petition or complaint, in writing, setting forth anything or act done or omitted to be done by any common carrier in violation, or claimed to be in violation, of any provision of law or of the terms and conditions of its franchise or charter or of any order or decision of the division.  Upon the presentation of such a complaint the division shall cause a copy thereof to be forwarded to the carrier, person or corporation complained of, which may be accompanied by an order, directed to such carrier, person or corporation, requiring that the matters complained of be satisfied, or that the charges be answered in writing within a time to be specified by the division.  If the carrier, person or corporation complained of shall make reparation for any injury alleged and shall cease to commit, or to permit, the violation of law, franchise, order or decision charged in the complaint, and shall notify the division of that fact before the time allowed for answer, the division need take no further action on the charges.  If, however, the charges contained in such petition be not thus satisfied, and it shall appear to the division that there are reasonable grounds therefor, it shall investigate such charges in such manner and by such means as it shall deem proper, and take such action within its powers as the facts justify.

  3.  Whenever the division shall investigate any matter complained of by any person or corporation aggrieved by any act or omission of a common carrier under this section, it shall be its duty, within sixty days after final submission, to make and file an order either dismissing the petition or complaint or directing the carrier, person or corporation complained of to satisfy the cause of complaint in whole or to the extent which the division may specify and require.
