17:29A-24. Review; stay
Any order made by the commissioner pursuant to the provisions of this act shall be subject to review by the Superior Court in a proceeding in lieu of prerogative writ. Upon the institution of the proceeding, the court may, in the following cases, stay the provisions of such order:
(a) Where, pursuant to section two of this act, a rating organization, which was engaged in the business of rate-making on the effective date of this act, has been refused a license by the commissioner. Such rating organization may, with leave of court, be allowed to continue to engage in business, subject to the provisions of this act, pending final disposition of its application for review; or
(b) Where any order of the commissioner shall provide for a change in any rating-system which results in an increase or decrease in rates, any insurer affected thereby may, with leave of court, pending final disposition of the proceedings in the Superior Court, continue to charge rates which obtained prior to such order, on condition that the difference in the rates be deposited in a special account by the insurer affected, to be held in trust by such insurer, and to be retained by the insurer or paid to the holders of policies issued after the order of the commissioner, as the court may determine.
