Pennsylvania Code



   Official Note

   Except for those matters listed in section 933(a)(1) of the Judicial Code, 42 Pa.C.S. §  933(a)(1), practice and procedure in appeals from Commonwealth agencies under the Administrative Agency Law, 2 Pa.C.S. §  103(a) are governed by Rule of Appellate Procedure 1501 et seq. Section 763(a) of the Judicial Code, 42 Pa.C.S. §  763(a), vests jurisdiction over such appeals in the Commonwealth Court.

Explanatory Note

   Prior to the inception of the Commonwealth Court, jurisdiction over appeals from certain administrative agencies was in the Court of Common Pleas of Dauphin County. This was limited to appeals authorized by the Administrative Agency Law. These appeals were regulated by Rules 1 to 13 inclusive.

   However, jurisdiction of these appeals was transferred to the Commonwealth Court by the Appellate Court Jurisdiction Act, approved July 31, 1970, P. L. 673, No. 223, §  403 as amended, 17 P. S. §  211.403 [repealed; see, now, 42 Pa.C.S.A. §  763 et seq.]. The Commonwealth Court has promulgated its own rules to cover these appeals. Rules 1 to 13 inclusive have been made obsolete and have been rescinded.
