decisions of commissioner.
Any final order or decision of the commissioner shall be subject to review by
petition filed within twenty (20) days after notice of it at the instance of
any party in interest in the superior court for the counties of Providence and
Bristol, and the matter shall be heard de novo in the superior court and
decisions on issues of fact shall be in accordance with the preponderance of

decision of the commissioner shall be stayed pending the review. The court may,
in disposing of the issue before it, modify, affirm, or reverse the order or
decision of the commissioner in whole or in part. Appeal may be taken from the
decision of the superior court to the supreme court, and the appeal shall
follow the course of equity.
