In this original proceeding pursuant to C.A.R. 21, the petitioner, the Colorado State Board of Medical Examiners (the Board), seeks a writ of prohibition to stay an order of the court of appeals. The Board summarily suspended the respondents license to practice medicine on May 21, 1996, effective May 24, 1996. The suspension was issued pursuant to the State Administrative Procedure Act (the APA), sections 24-4-101 to-108, 10A C.R.S. (1988 & 1995 Supp.), and, in particular, section 24-4-104(4), 10A C.R.S. (1988), of the APA. Thereafter, the respondent, Cynthia J. Owens, M.D. (Owens), filed a motion in the Denver District Court to stay her suspension. On May 24, 1996, the trial court orally granted a temporary restraining order, staying the effective date of the suspension until May 31, 1996, to permit the trial court to undertake the necessary research and analysis on Owens motion. On May 29, 1996, having reviewed the relevant statutory and case law, the trial court denied Owens motion for a temporary restraining order. However, the trial court left its previous order in effect until May 31, 1996, at 5:00 p.m.
