Procedure when person refuses to testify or produce books

If a person in attendance before the Oregon Liquor Control Commission or a commissioner refuses, without reasonable cause, to be examined or to answer a legal and pertinent question, or to produce a book or paper when ordered so to do by the commission, the commission may apply to the judge of the circuit court of any county where such person is in attendance, upon proof by affidavit of the fact, for a rule or order returnable in not less than two nor more than five days, directing such person to show cause before the judge who made the order, or any other judge of such county, why the person should not be punished for contempt. Upon the return of such order, the judge shall examine such person under oath and the person shall be given an opportunity to be heard. If the judge determines that such person has refused, without reasonable cause or legal excuse, to be examined or to answer a legal or pertinent question, or to produce a book or paper which the person was ordered to bring or produce, the judge may forthwith punish the offender for contempt of court.
