Section 18-1A-286

Appeal to circuit court upon denial of application by probate court.

If the probate court refuses to grant the application, the applicant shall have a right of appeal to the circuit court upon giving security for costs, to be approved by the judge of probate, and upon such appeal the trial shall be de novo. Upon any appeal taken to the circuit court under this section, if such circuit court determines that the application should be granted, it shall immediately proceed either to have the damages and compensation assessed as provided in Section 18-1A-151 or grant the condemnor the right of entry upon deposit of the amount of its approved offer into circuit court together with a bond in double the amount as provided in Section 18-1A-284. In such latter event the valuation issue shall be determined as provided in Section 18-1A-151 as may be set by the circuit court.
