If a licensed household goods warehouse operator fails to perform a duty or violates this chapter, any person or corporation injured by such failure or violation may, with the consent of the department and the attorney general, bring an action in the name of the state, but to the person’s or corporation’s own use, in any court of competent jurisdiction on the bond of the household goods warehouse operator. In such action the person or corporation in whose behalf the action is brought shall file with the court a satisfactory bond for costs, and the state shall not be liable for any costs.
