Notwithstanding the provisions of chapter 622A of NRS:


Pending disciplinary proceedings before the Division or a hearing officer, the court may, upon application by the Division or the Attorney General, issue a temporary restraining order or a preliminary injunction to enjoin any unprofessional conduct of a behavior analyst, an assistant behavior analyst or a registered behavior technician which is harmful to the public, to limit the practice of the behavior analyst, assistant behavior analyst or registered behavior technician or to suspend the license to practice as a behavior analyst or assistant behavior analyst or registration to practice as a registered behavior technician without proof of actual damage sustained by any person, this provision being a preventive as well as a punitive measure.


The disciplinary proceedings before the Division or a hearing officer must be instituted and determined as promptly as the requirements for investigation of the case reasonably allow.


The Division shall not make an application pursuant to subsection 1 without the approval of the Board.
