15 USC Sec. 80b-13                                          01/05/2009




    Sec. 80b-13. Court review of orders


    (a) Petition; jurisdiction; findings of Commission; additional
      evidence; finality
      Any person or party aggrieved by an order issued by the
    Commission under this subchapter may obtain a review of such order
    in the United States court of appeals within any circuit wherein
    such person resides or has his principal place of business, or in
    the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, by
    filing in such court, within sixty days after the entry of such
    order, a written petition praying that the order of the Commission
    be modified or set aside in whole or in part. A copy of such
    petition shall be forthwith transmitted by the clerk of the court
    to any member of the Commission, or any officer thereof designated
    by the Commission for that purpose, and thereupon the Commission
    shall file in the court the record upon which the order complained
    of was entered, as provided in section 2112 of title 28. Upon the
    filing of such petition such court shall have jurisdiction, which
    upon the filing of the record shall be exclusive, to affirm,
    modify, or set aside such order, in whole or in part. No objection
    to the order of the Commission shall be considered by the court
    unless such objection shall have been urged before the Commission
    or unless there were reasonable grounds for failure so to do. The
    findings of the Commission as to the facts, if supported by
    substantial evidence, shall be conclusive. If application is made
    to the court for leave to adduce additional evidence, and it is
    shown to the satisfaction of the court that such additional
    evidence is material and that there were reasonable grounds for
    failure to adduce such evidence in the proceeding before the
    Commission, the court may order such additional evidence to be
    taken before the Commission and to be adduced upon the hearing in
    such manner and upon such terms and conditions as to the court may
    seem proper. The Commission may modify its findings as to the facts
    by reason of the additional evidence so taken, and it shall file
    with the court such modified or new findings, which, if supported
    by substantial evidence, shall be conclusive, and its
    recommendation, if any, for the modification or setting aside of
    the original order. The judgment and decree of the court affirming,
    modifying, or setting aside, in whole or in part, any such order of
    the Commission shall be final, subject to review by the Supreme
    Court of the United States upon certiorari or certification as
    provided in section 1254 of title 28.
    (b) Stay of Commission's order
      The commencement of proceedings under subsection (a) of this
    section shall not, unless specifically ordered by the court,
    operate as a stay of the Commission's order.
