Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

Section 1. Subdivision d of section 20-559 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as added by local law number 80 for the year 2016, is amended to read as follows:

d. For the purposes of this subchapter, there shall be a rebuttable presumption that any violation of any provision of this subchapter or any rules promulgated pursuant to such subchapter by a ticket seller was caused by:

1. the place of entertainment, mode of transportation, or guided tour whose ticket is vended; and/or

2. the person on whose behalf the ticket is vended.

Such presumption shall not apply: (i) where the ticket vended is counterfeit and was not issued by the place of entertainment, mode of transportation, or guided tour; or (ii) where the circumstances of the vending were not authorized or subject to the control of the place of entertainment, mode of transportation, or guided tour.

e. A proceeding to recover any civil penalty pursuant to this section shall be commenced by the service of a summons or notice of violation which shall be returnable to the office of administrative trials and hearings.

§ 2. This local law takes effect on the same date that local law number 80 for the year 2016 takes effect.
