Rule 3. Stay of an Administrative Decision
(a) Motion for Stay Pending Appeal. A party may file with the clerk of the superior court a motion to stay a final administrative decision, in whole or in part, pending the final disposition of the appeal, pursuant to A.R.S. § 12-911. The motion for stay must be a separate filing from the notice of appeal required by A.R.S. § 12-904. The party filing the motion for stay must provide proper notice to the agency affected and all other parties to the proceeding before the agency. Form 3 is a template for the motion for stay.
(b) Standard for Issuance of Stay Pending Appeal. The superior court may grant the motion for stay pending appeal for good cause shown. The motion for stay must address the following:
1. The strong likelihood of success on the merits;
2. The irreparable harm if the stay is not granted;
3. The harm to the requesting party outweighs the harm to the party opposing the stay; and
4. Whether the public policy favors the granting of the stay.
(c) Bond on Appeal. A stay of an administrative decision may be entered in superior court with or without bond, except if otherwise provided by statute.
