commissioner; judicial review.
For the implementation of this article and for advising all
persons of their rights and privileges under this article, the
commissioner, by regulation and in accordance with section
thirteen, article two of this chapter, shall establish a
procedure whereby any person whose automobile liability insurance
policy has been cancelled or whose policy has not been renewed
without proper notice being given to such insured, may within
forty-five days after the mailing of notice of cancellation or
nonrenewal appeal such cancellation or nonrenewal to the
commissioner for hearing and review. The appeal and hearing
shall relate to the ground or grounds upon which the insurer's
action is based. The commissioner after such hearing may affirm
the insurer's cancellation or nonrenewal, or may reinstate the
policy and if reinstated such policy shall become effective from
the date of cancellation or nonrenewal. Either party may appeal
the commissioner's ruling to the circuit court of the county in
which the applicant or the insured resides in accordance with
section fourteen, article two of this chapter.
