NOTICE TO DOMINIC ALESSI:


Effective as of June 25, 2014, your Maine nonresident insurance producer license will be REVOKED without further formal proceedings unless you request a hearing as specified below.

The reasons for license revocation are as follows:

  1. On February 7, 2012, the State of Ohio found that you failed to respond to a subpoena from the Insurance Department for an interview. As a result, you were ordered to pay a penalty of $200. Your failure to respond to the subpoena constitutes grounds for revocation of your Maine license under 24-A M.R.S. § 1420-K(1)(B), for violating insurance laws.
  1. The State of Washington revoked your producer license on August 8, 2012, for failing to report the administrative action in Ohio and failing to respond to the Insurance Commissioner’s letters to you. The Washington revocation constitutes grounds for revocation of your Maine license under 24-A M.R.S. § 1420-K(1)(B), for violating insurance laws, and § 1420-K(1)(I), for having an insurance producer license, or its equivalent, denied, suspended, or revoked in any other state, province, district, or territory.
  1. The Commonwealth of Virginia revoked your producer license on October 23, 2012, for failure to report the administrative action taken against you by the State of Ohio. The Virginia revocation constitutes grounds for revocation of your Maine license under 24-A M.R.S. § 1420-K(1)(B), for violating insurance laws, and § 1420-K(1)(I), for having an insurance producer license, or its equivalent, denied, suspended, or revoked in any other state, province, district, or territory.
  1. The State of South Dakota revoked your producer license on July 29, 2013, for failing to report the administrative action in Ohio and failing to timely respond to the Division of Insurance inquiries. The South Dakota revocation constitutes grounds for revocation of your Maine license under 24-A M.R.S. § 1420-K(1)(B), for violating insurance laws, and § 1420-K(1)(I), for having an insurance producer license, or its equivalent, denied, suspended, or revoked in any other state, province, district, or territory.
  1. The State of Louisiana revoked your producer license on August 20, 2013, for failing to report your license revocations in Virginia and Washington, or the imposition of a fine by the Ohio Department of Insurance. The Louisiana revocation constitutes grounds for revocation of your Maine license under 24-A M.R.S. § 1420-K(1)(B), for violating insurance laws, and § 1420-K(1)(I), for having an insurance producer license, or its equivalent, denied, suspended, or revoked in any other state, province, district, or territory.
  1. You failed to report any of the 4 license revocations to the Maine Superintendent of Insurance or the administrative action in Ohio as required by 24-A M.R.S. § 1420-P(1), which also constitutes grounds for revocation of your Maine license under 24-A M.R.S. § 1420-K(1)(B), for violating insurance laws.

Therefore, based upon the above grounds, your Maine insurance producer license is revoked as of June 25, 2014, pursuant to 24-A M.R.S. §§1417 and 1420-K, subject to your right to request a hearing.

Under the Maine Insurance Code, specifically 24-A M.R.S. §1417 and §1420‑K, you have the right to a hearing before the Superintendent or his designee.  If you request a hearing, you will have the right to present evidence and arguments in your defense, and the staff of the Bureau of Insurance will bear the burden of proving each violation by a preponderance of evidence.

If you request a hearing, you will receive further communication regarding scheduling.  The matters to be determined through the hearing process are whether you committed one or more of the violations listed above, and if so, the appropriate sanctions for those violations.  The sanctions imposed after a hearing can include any available remedy under applicable laws, including the payment of civil penalties.

To request a hearing, you must notify the Bureau of Insurance in writing no later than June 25, 2014. If you do not file a written request for a hearing within 30 days from the time you know or reasonably should have known of the revocation of your license through this Notice and Order, you will lose your right to request a hearing on this license revocation Notice and Order.

Any request for a hearing, as well as all other communications regarding this Notice, Order, and Opportunity for Hearing must be addressed to Bureau staff Attorney Kristina M. Balbo, Bureau of Insurance, #34 State House Station, Augusta, ME 04333-0034.  You may also reach Attorney Balbo by e-mail at kristina.m.balbo@maine.gov or by telephone at (207) 624-8429.
