§29-2A-23. Judicial review of commission's action.

Any person aggrieved by any final order of the commission shall have the right to a judicial review of the action of the commission, upon certiorari by the circuit court of Kanawha county, West Virginia. The granting of such review, upon certiorari, shall be within the sound discretion of the judge of the said circuit court. A petition for such review must be filed with the said court, or with the judge thereof in vacation, within a period of thirty days from the date of entry of the final order complained of. An appeal from any final order entered by the said circuit court upon granting such writ of certiorari may be had by application to the Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia for a writ of error and supersedeas. Such application to the Supreme Court of Appeals shall be made within thirty days of the entry of the order appealed from by the said circuit court: Provided, however, That when either the circuit court or the Supreme Court of Appeals has taken jurisdiction of any such case, such court may, in its sound discretion, refuse a stay of execution or supersedeas to the order of the commission or any portion thereof during the time that the case is pending before the said court, if the court is of the opinion that the order of the commission or a part of such order is reasonable and has been issued for the protection of the public safety.
