The board shall not accept or consider an appeal of suspension or revocation under this section if the appeal is founded upon the grounds of whether the retailer, or any employee or agent of the retailer, violated the STAKE Act (Division 8.5 (commencing with Section 22950)) for which violation civil penalties are imposed by the State Department of Public Health pursuant to subdivision (a) of Section 22958.
