URAP Rule 17 (Rules of Appellate Procedure)


Rule 17. Stay pending review.
Rule printed on June 3, 2023 at 2:09 am. Go to https://www.utcourts.gov/rules for current rules.
Effective: 11/1/2022

Application for a stay of a decision or order of an agency pending direct review in the appellate court shall ordinarily be made in the first instance to the agency if the agency is authorized by law to grant a stay. If a motion for such relief is made to the appellate court, the motion shall show that application to the agency for the relief sought is not practicable, or that application has been made to the agency and denied, with the reasons given by it for denial. The motion shall also show the reasons for the relief requested and the facts relied upon, and if the facts are subject to dispute, the motion shall be supported by affidavits or declarations. With the motion shall be filed those parts of the record relevant to the relief sought. Reasonable notice of the filing of the motion and any hearing shall be given to all parties to the proceeding in the appellate court. The appellate court may condition relief under this rule upon the filing of a bond or other appropriate security. The motion shall be filed with the clerk and normally will be considered by the court, but in exceptional cases where such procedure would be impracticable due to the requirements of time, the application may be considered by a single justice or judge of the court.

Advisory Committee Note

“Declaration” refers to an unsworn declaration as described in Title 78B, Chapter 18a, Uniform Unsworn Declarations Act.
