Within 30 days after the embargo, the Secretary shall cause to be instituted in the Superior Court of the county in which the violator resides, has a place of business, or commits the violation a petition for an order for disposal of the product. Prior to the petition or pending court directions, the Secretary may agree with the owner of the product for its disposal, provided the disposal is not in violation of law.
