67-5317. Petition for review procedure. (1) If a petition for review is filed, the personnel commission shall review the record of the proceeding before the hearing officer, briefs submitted in accordance with any briefing schedule it orders, and any transcripts submitted of the hearing below. The commission may grant the parties the opportunity to present oral argument, but need not do so if the record clearly shows that the commission or the hearing officer lacks jurisdiction over the appeal or petition for review. The personnel commission may affirm, reverse or modify the decision of the hearing officer, may remand the matter, or may dismiss it for lack of jurisdiction.
(2) Any party in interest may file in the district court for the county in which any party to the proceedings resides, a certified copy of the decision of the commission, which the district court shall have the power to enforce by proper proceedings.
(3) A decision of the commission shall be final and conclusive between the parties, unless within forty-two (42) days of the filing of such decision either party appeals to the district court. Where the decision of the personnel commission directed the reinstatement of an employee, the employee shall be reinstated upon receipt of a copy of the decision unless a stay of the order be granted by the district court upon proper petition.
