Appeal To Superior CourtEither party, the Complainant or the Respondent, before a rehearing or after a rehearing, may appeal the Decision and Order of the Registrar of Contractors to superior court .
In either case the appeal must be filed with the court on or before forty (40) days after the date the Decision and Order is mailed to the parties.
The procedures and requirements for any such appeal are set forth in A.R.S. §§12-901 et seq.
IMPORTANTFiling the appeal with the court does not automatically stay the implementation of the Registrar's Order.
If the party appealing the Decision and Order does not want the Order to go into effect (the discipline, suspension, revocation, dismissal, or closure), then they must separately ask the court to issue an order staying the Registrar's Order.
If the court issues a stay order, the party must ensure that a copy of the court's stay order is sent to the Legal Department, Registrar of Contractors and that it arrives before the effective date of the Registrar's Order.
If we do not receive a stay order from the court before the effective date of the Registrar's Order, the Order will go into effect and any required discipline against the license will be imposed.
