Body
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: Final decisions of the Rent Abatement Hearing Examiner may be appealed to circuit court. This proposal clarifies that such an appeal is subject to the certiorari review procedures set forth in Wis. Stat. § 68.13. This proposal adds language similar to that in Sec. 39.03(10)(c)4., MGO, which relates to the appeal of final orders of the Equal Opportunities Commission. It also changes the start of the appeal period from within 30 of service by mail, to within 30 days of receipt of the final determination, in order to conform with Wis. Stat. § 68.13(1).
