44. The expropriated party may, within 30 days following the date of service of the notice of expropriation, contest the right of the expropriating party to expropriate, by an application to the Superior Court of the district in which the immovable to be expropriated is situated. Such application must be served on the expropriating party and the Tribunal, and must be heard and decided by preference.
The contestation of the right to expropriate suspends the expropriation proceedings other than the registration provided for in section 42.
