Administrative Hearing Decisions

The Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH) hears contested cases related to the desist and refrain orders, administrative actions and orders issued under the jurisdiction of the Division of Corporations. Administrative Law Judges (ALJ) preside over OAH proceedings in a manner similar to civil court trials with each party given an opportunity to make an opening statement, call witnesses, offer other relevant evidence, and make closing arguments. The ALJs are fully independent of the agencies whose attorneys appear before them and are neutral fact-finders.

Consumer Alerts

The Department of Business Oversight issues the Consumer Alerts! relating to companies offering escrow services, lending services, or are falsely advertising that they are licensed by the Department of Business Oversight. Please note that these companies are not licensed by the California Department of Business Oversight to engage in business and may be operating in violation of California law.  If you need further assistance relating to these or other individuals and entities, please contact the Department’s Consumer Service Center by telephone: 1-866-275-2677 or 916-327-7585.

Precedent Decisions

The Division of Corporations has designated several administrative decisions as precedent decisions. A precedent decision is a decision or part of a decision that contains a significant legal or policy determination of general application that is likely to recur. See the list of the Division’s Precedent Decisions.
