SEC. 41-51-29. Appeals.
Any licensee or other person, aggrieved by any final decision or order of the commissioner made or entered in or on such decision or order may appeal to the circuit court of the first judicial district of Hinds County, by filing with the commissioner a petition for review within thirty days from the date of such decision or order, specifying the grounds upon which he relies, and by filing with the clerk of said court a bond with such surety or sureties and in such penalty as shall be approved by the commissioner or the clerk or judge of said court, conditioned that such appellant will pay all costs of the appeal in event such appeal is unsuccessful. The state may appeal from such decision or order in like time and manner without giving bond. Such appeal, and appeal bond, shall not operate as a supersedeas, but the commissioner, or the judge of said circuit court (or any judge of the supreme court in event of appeals thereto) may grant a supersedeas upon such terms and conditions and upon such bond as may be deemed proper. All appeal and supersedeas bonds shall be payable to the state and may from time to time and upon cause shown be ordered increased or ordered replaced by other bonds with approved sureties, and may be enforced in the manner provided by law for the enforcement of other similar bonds. In perfecting such an appeal, the provisions of law respecting notice to the reporter and the allowance of bills of exception, now or hereafter in force respecting appeals from circuit courts to the supreme court, shall be applicable. The cause shall be triable as a preference cause either in term time or vacation, and at such time and place as may be fixed by the circuit judge. The appeal shall be upon the record, which shall contain the petition for review and the proceedings, evidence, and decision or order appealed from, and the same shall be signed by the commissioner or the person acting as his representative and by him transmitted forthwith to said circuit court. Such court shall hear and determine the case presented by such record, and may affirm or set aside the decision or order from which the appeal was taken and shall thereupon certify its judgment to the commissioner. In case the decision or order of the commissioner be set aside by the circuit court, such court shall enter and render such judgment, decision or order as the commissioner should have rendered, unless it be necessary, in consequence of its decision, that some decision or ruling entirely administrative or legislative in nature be made, or that some fact or question of fact not appearing in or not settled by the record be ascertained or determined, in which cases the matter shall be remanded to the commissioner for further proceedings and action or decision in accord with the judgment and direction of such circuit court from which further proceedings, action, or decision of the commissioner further appeals may be taken to the circuit court in the manner provided in this section. Costs on an appeal shall be awarded as in other cases. Any party, including the state and the commissioner, aggrieved by a final decision of said circuit court, may appeal to the supreme court in the manner provided by law.
