SC Administrative Law Court Decisions

CAPTION:
DOI vs. Zarak Ali, d/b/a Ali Bonding Co.

AGENCY:
South Carolina Department of Insurance

PARTIES:
Petitioner:
South Carolina Department of Insurance

Respondent:
Zarak Ali, d/b/a Ali Bonding Co.
 
DOCKET NUMBER:
04-ALJ-09-0308-CC

APPEARANCES:
n/a
 

ORDERS:

ORDER OF DISMISSAL

In the above-captioned matter, Petitioner South Carolina Department of Insurance (Department) seeks the revocation of Respondent’s bail bondsmen’s license for soliciting business on jailhouse grounds, based upon an incident that occurred in late 2002. However, after filing the matter with this Court in September 2004, the Department learned of certain criminal charges pending against Respondent in Greenville County, and, by a motion filed on November 4, 2004, moved for the dismissal of this case, without prejudice, pending the resolution of the criminal proceedings against Respondent. While this tribunal is concerned with the Department’s dilatory prosecution of its revocation of Respondent’s license, it does seem clear that the outcome of Respondent’s pending criminal proceedings will have a significant impact upon the Department’s actions with regard to Respondent’s license and that the interests of judicial economy weigh in favor of having a single administrative proceeding against Respondent’s license, including a single hearing before this tribunal, based upon the totality of Respondent’s conduct, rather than multiple such proceedings and hearings.

IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the above-captioned matter is hereby DISMISSED without prejudice.

AND IT IS SO ORDERED.
