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. BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 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.
