AS 21.39.170. Hearing Procedure and Judicial Review.

(a) An insurer or rating organization to which the director has issued an order made without a hearing may, within 30 days after notice to it of the order, make written request to the director for a hearing. The director shall hear the party or parties within 20 days after receipt of the request and shall give not less than 10 days written notice of the time and place of the hearing. Within 15 days after the hearing the director shall affirm, reverse or modify the previous action, specifying the reasons. Pending the hearing and decision the director may suspend or postpone the effective date of the previous action.

(b) Nothing contained in this chapter may require the observance at a hearing of formal rules of pleading or evidence.

(c) An order or decision of the director is subject to review by appeal to the superior court at the instance of a party in interest. The court shall determine whether the filing of the appeal will operate as a stay of an order or decision of the director. The court may, in disposing of the issue before it, modify, affirm, or reverse the order or decision of the director in whole or in part.
