Conclusions of Law

9.         Pursuant to 8 V.S.A. § 4804(a)(10), the Commissioner has the authority to revoke a non-resident license if, after notice and opportunity for hearing, he finds the licensee’s license has been suspended or revoked in any other state.

10.       Pursuant to 8 V.S.A. § 15 the Commissioner may issue orders necessary to the administration of and to carry out the purposes of Title 8 of the Vermont Statutes.

11.       Respondent, pursuant to Section 5(a) of Regulation 82-1 (Revised)

(“Regulation 82-1”), was required to file an answer no later than 30 days after the date of service of the petition in this contested case.

            12.       Section 5(b) of Regulation 82-1 provides, that if a Respondent fails to serve an answer timely, the allegations contained in the pleading that initiated the contested case will be treated as proven and a default judgment may be entered as provided in Section 12 of this regulation.     

            13.       Section 12 of Regulation 82-1 provides, that where a Respondent, against

whom a pleading initiating a contested case has been properly served, fails to answer within the time-period specified in Section 5(a) or fails to defend the charge, the Petitioner may move for a decision by default. The Commissioner may render a decision by default at any time after the passage of ten days from the date of filing and service of the motion for default, whereupon the Commissioner may issue any applicable order.

 14.      The Respondent has not provided a timely answer, request for a hearing, or any defense to the petition.  Additionally, the Respondent has failed to serve an answer to the Insurance Division’s Motion for Default Judgment and ten (10) days have passed since the time of the filing of the motion.  Therefore, the allegations contained in the petition are treated as proven and default judgment may be entered in the above-captioned matter.
