period may not challenge the reasonableness or validity of a
decision or order of the hearing officer in any judicial proceedings
brought to enforce the decision or order or for other remedies.
   (b) Except as otherwise provided in this section, Section 1094.5
of the Code of Civil Procedure governs any proceedings conducted
pursuant to this subdivision. In all proceedings pursuant to this
subdivision, the court shall uphold the decision of the hearing
officer if the decision is based upon substantial evidence in the
whole record.
   (c) The filing of a petition for writ of mandate does not stay any
corrective action required pursuant to this chapter or the accrual
of any penalties assessed pursuant to this chapter.
