    Laws of Minnesota 1993 

                        CHAPTER 152-S.F.No. 741 
           An act relating to civil actions; authorizing appeals 
          from the decisions of civil service commissions by 
          first-class cities and their employees on the same 
          basis and to the same extent; amending Minnesota 
          Statutes 1992, section 484.01. 
    Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1992, section 484.01, is 
amended to read: 
    484.01 [JURISDICTION.] 
    Subdivision 1.  [GENERAL.] The district courts shall have 
original jurisdiction in all civil actions within their 
respective districts, in all cases of crime committed or triable 
therein, in all special proceedings not exclusively cognizable 
by some other court or tribunal, and in all other cases wherein 
such jurisdiction is especially conferred upon them by law.  
They shall also have appellate jurisdiction in every case in 
which an appeal thereto is allowed by law from any other court, 
officer, or body. 
    Subd. 2.  [CIVIL SERVICE REVIEWS.] Notwithstanding any law 
to the contrary, the district court has jurisdiction to review a 
final decision or order of a civil service commission or board 
upon the petition of an employee or appointing authority in any 
first-class city.  The employee and appointing authority have 
standing to seek judicial review in all these cases.  Review of 
the decision or order may be had by securing issuance of a writ 
of certiorari within 60 days after the date of mailing notice of 
the decision to the party applying for the writ.  To the extent 
possible, the provisions of rules 110, 111, and 115 of the Rules 
of Civil Appellate Procedure govern the procedures to be 
followed.  Each reference in those rules to the court of 
appeals, the trial court, the trial court administrator, and the 
notice of appeal must be read, where appropriate, as a reference 
to the district court, the body whose decision is to be 
reviewed, to the administrator, clerk, or secretary of that 
body, and to the writ of certiorari, respectively.  This 
subdivision does not alter or amend the application of sections 
197.455 and 197.46, relating to veterans preference. 
    Sec. 2.  [EFFECTIVE DATE.] 
    Section 1 is effective the day following final enactment. 
    Presented to the governor May 11, 1993 
    Signed by the governor May 14, 1993, 9:07 a.m.
