Judicial review of decision of Board of Review: Commencement of action in district court

  • parties
  • service of petition
  • summary hearings
  • appeals to appellate court.


Within 11 days after the decision of the Board of Review has become final, any party aggrieved thereby or the Administrator may secure judicial review thereof by commencing an action in the district court of the county where the employment which is the basis of the claim was performed for the review of the decision, in which action any other party to the proceedings before the Board of Review must be made a defendant.


In such action, a petition which need not be verified, but which must state the grounds upon which a review is sought, must be served upon the Administrator, unless the Administrator is the appellant, or upon such person as the Administrator may designate, and such service shall be deemed completed service on all parties, but there must be left with the party so served as many copies of the petition as there are defendants, and the Administrator shall forthwith mail one such copy to each defendant.


With the Administrator’s answer or petition, the Administrator shall certify and file with the court originals or true copies of all documents and papers and a transcript of all testimony taken in the matter, together with the Board of Review’s findings of fact and decision therein. The Administrator may certify to the court questions of law involved in any decision.


In any judicial proceedings under this section, the finding of the Board of Review as to the facts, if supported by evidence and in the absence of fraud, is conclusive, and the jurisdiction of the court is confined to questions of law.


Such actions, and the questions so certified, must be heard in a summary manner and must be given precedence over all other civil cases except cases arising under chapters 616A to 616D, inclusive, or chapter 617 of NRS.


An appeal may be taken from the decision of the district court to the appellate court of competent jurisdiction pursuant to the rules fixed by the Supreme Court of Nevada pursuant to Section 4 of Article 6 of the Nevada Constitution in the same manner, but not inconsistent with the provisions of this chapter, as is provided in civil cases.


It is not necessary, in any judicial proceeding under this section, to enter exceptions to the rulings of the Board of Review, and no bond may be required for entering the appeal.


Upon the final determination of the judicial proceeding, the Board of Review shall enter an order in accordance with the determination.


A petition for judicial review does not act as a supersedeas or stay unless the Board of Review so orders.
