The public agencies and political subdivisions administering them--the Chief, the Administrator and Council--or interested private parties, may initiate court proceedings where authorized under statutes in an appropriate case without recourse to (or during) administrative proceedings described under this Article. See, e.g., Labor Code Section 3084.5; Bus. & Prof. Code Section 17200, et seq.
