(1) Summon and compel, by order or subpoena, witnesses to appear before the superintendent,
deputy superintendent, examiner, attorney, or such other person designated by the
superintendent and testify under oath regarding the affairs of a bank or trust company
or, in relation to matters concerning a state bank, foreign bank, or trust company,
a regulated person;
(2) Compel, by order or subpoena, the production of any record, book, paper, document,
item, or other thing pertaining to a bank or trust company or, in relation to matters
concerning a state bank, foreign bank, or trust company, a regulated person.
(C) If a person fails to comply with an order or subpoena of the superintendent or
refuses to testify to any matter regarding which the person is lawfully interrogated
before the division of financial institutions, on application of the superintendent,
the court of common pleas of the county in which the person resides or in which the
principal place of business of the person is located, or a judge of the court, shall
compel compliance by attachment proceedings as for contempt in the case of noncompliance
with a subpoena issued from the court or refusal to testify in the court. Failure of a regulated person to comply fully with an order or subpoena issued under
the authority of this section shall be grounds for removing the regulated person from
office, prohibiting the regulated person from participating directly or indirectly
in the affairs of a bank or trust company, or imposing civil penalties against the
