Wis. Admin. Code Lirc § LIRC 2.05 - Actions for judicial review

Current through November 29, 2021

Judicial review of any commission decision under s. 108.09 or 108.10, Stats., shall be commenced in the manner and upon the grounds specified in ss. 108.09(7) and 102.23, Stats., and not under ch. 227 or s. 801.02, Stats. Either party may commence a legal action for review of the commission decision in circuit court within 30 days from the date the decision was mailed to the party's last known address. Such action is commenced only by filing a summons and complaint with the circuit court and serving an authenticated copy of the summons and the complaint upon the commission, all within 30 days. Service must be made upon a commissioner of the labor and industry review commission or an agent authorized by the commission to accept service only at the commission's office in Madison. Such service shall be deemed complete service on all parties but there shall be left with the person so served as many copies of the summons and complaint as there are defendants. Service by mail is effective only if the pleadings are actually received by the commission within the appeal period. The complaint shall state the grounds upon which review is sought. The action shall be commenced against the commission, and the party in whose favor the decision was made shall also be made a defendant. The proceedings shall be in the circuit court of the county where the plaintiff resides except that, if the plaintiff is a state agency, the proceedings shall be in the circuit court of the county where the defendant resides. If the plaintiff is a non-resident of Wisconsin, the proceedings shall be in the circuit court for the county where the claim arose. The proceedings may be brought in any circuit court if all parties stipulate and that court agrees. The appealing party shall arrange for preparation of the necessary legal documents.
