RULE 7-201. GENERAL PROVISIONS
(a) Applicability. The rules in this Chapter govern actions for judicial review of (1) an order or action of an administrative agency, where judicial review is authorized by statute, and (2) a final determination of the trustees of the Client Protection Fund of the Bar of Maryland.
(b) Definition. As used in this Chapter, “administrative agency” means any agency, board, department, district, commission, authority, commissioner, official, the Maryland Tax Court, or other unit of the State or of a political subdivision of the State and the Client Protection Fund of the Bar of Maryland.
Committee note: Regarding the inherent power of a court, in the absence of a statute authorizing judicial review, to review actions by an administrative agency that are arbitrary, illegal, capricious, or deny a litigant some fundamental right, see Criminal Injuries Compensation Board v. Gould, 273 Md. 486, 501 (1975), Board of Education of Prince George's County v. Secretary of Personnel, 317 Md. 34, 44 (1989), and Silverman v. Maryland Deposit Insurance Fund, 317 Md. 306, 323-326 (1989).
