If a hearing is conducted under the contested case procedure in accordance with § 2-509, a person suffering a legal wrong, or adversely affected or aggrieved, by an order or decision may appeal to the District of Columbia Court of Appeals in accordance with § 2-510.
The filing of an appeal under this section shall not stay the application of a rule, regulation, order, or other action of the Commissioner to the appealing party unless the court, after giving the appealing party notice and an opportunity to be heard, determines that failure to grant a stay would be detrimental to the interest of policyholders, shareholders, creditors, or the public.
