7 U.S.C. § 7468 : US Code - Section 7468: Enforcement

    (a) Jurisdiction
      A district court of the United States shall have jurisdiction
    specifically to enforce, and to prevent and restrain any person
    from violating, any order or regulation made or issued by the
    Secretary under this subchapter.
    (b) Referral to Attorney General
      A civil action authorized to be brought under this section shall
    be referred to the Attorney General for appropriate action, except
    that the Secretary is not required to refer to the Attorney General
    a violation of this subchapter, or any order or regulation issued
    under this subchapter, if the Secretary believes that the
    administration and enforcement of this subchapter would be
    adequately served by administrative action under subsection (c) of
    this section or suitable written notice or warning to the person
    committing the violation.
    (c) Civil penalties and orders
      (1) Civil penalties
        Any person who willfully violates any provision of any order or
      regulation issued by the Secretary under this subchapter, or who
      fails or refuses to pay, collect, or remit any assessment or fee
      duly required of the person under the order or regulation, may be
      assessed a civil penalty by the Secretary of not less than $500
      nor more than $5,000 for each such violation. Each violation
      shall be a separate offense.
      (2) Cease-and-desist orders
        In addition to or in lieu of the civil penalty, the Secretary
      may issue an order requiring the person to cease and desist from
      continuing the violation.
      (3) Notice and hearing
        No order assessing a civil penalty or cease-and-desist order
      may be issued by the Secretary under this subsection unless the
      Secretary gives the person against whom the order is issued
      notice and opportunity for a hearing on the record before the
      Secretary with respect to the violation.
      (4) Finality
        The order of the Secretary assessing a penalty or imposing a
      cease-and-desist order shall be final and conclusive unless the
      person against whom the order is issued files an appeal of the
      order in the appropriate district court of the United States, in
      accordance with subsection (d) of this section.
    (d) Review by United States district court
      (1) Commencement of action
        Any person against whom a violation is found and a civil
      penalty assessed or cease-and-desist order issued under
      subsection (c) of this section may obtain review of the penalty
      or cease-and-desist order in the district court of the United
      States for the district in which the person resides or carries on
      business, or the United States District Court for the District of
      Columbia, by - 
          (A) filing a notice of appeal in the court not later than 30
        days after the date on which the penalty is assessed or cease-
        and-desist order issued; and
          (B) simultaneously sending a copy of the notice by certified
        mail to the Secretary.
      (2) Record
        The Secretary shall promptly file in the court a certified copy
      of the record on which the Secretary found that the person
      committed the violation.
      (3) Standard of review
        A finding of the Secretary shall be set aside only if the
      finding is found to be unsupported by substantial evidence.
    (e) Failure to obey cease-and-desist orders
      Any person who fails to obey a cease-and-desist order issued by
    the Secretary after the cease-and-desist order has become final and
    unappealable, or after the appropriate United States district court
    has entered a final judgment in favor of the Secretary, shall be
    subject to a civil penalty assessed by the Secretary, after
    opportunity for a hearing and for judicial review under the
    procedures specified in subsections (c) and (d) of this section, of
    not more than $500 for each offense. Each day during which the
    failure continues shall be considered a separate violation of the
    cease-and-desist order.
    (f) Failure to pay penalties
      If a person fails to pay an assessment of a civil penalty after
    the assessment has become a final and unappealable order issued by
    the Secretary, or after the appropriate United States district
    court has entered final judgment in favor of the Secretary, the
    Secretary shall refer the matter to the Attorney General for
    recovery of the amount assessed in the district court of the United
    States for any district in which the person resides or carries on
    business. In an action for recovery, the validity and
    appropriateness of the final order imposing the civil penalty shall
    not be subject to review.
