§ 15.62. Suspensions and revocations.

 (a)  In the case of a suspension of a license, the Order of the Administrative Law Judge shall direct the licensee to post in a conspicuous place on the outside of the licensed premises or in a window plainly visible from outside the licensed premises, a notice of the suspension in the form and size and containing the provisions the Office of Administrative Law Judge may require. The notice shall remain posted during the entire period of suspension.

 (b)  During the suspension period, a licensee, its servants, agents or employes, may not cause to be advertised in any manner, or place in, or about the premises, notice of any kind stating that the licensed establishment is closed for any reason other than the suspension of the license.

 (c)  Suspensions or revocations of permits or licenses shall be carried out as directed in the adjudication. Failure to adhere to the adjudication is sufficient cause for the issuance of a citation to show cause why the license should not be suspended or revoked or a fine imposed.

 (d)  When a licensed application for transfer is pending and the transferor has an outstanding license suspension imposed by the Office of Administrative Law Judge that has not yet been served and connot be served because the premises is not in operation, the transferee shall either serve the suspension upon approval of the transfer, or request that the suspension be converted to a fine to be paid by the transferee upon approval of the transfer, subject to §  7.10 (relating to conversion of suspension to fine).
