  • Attention Practitioners - The Commission has modified its procedures for requesting a VRH and submission of Exhibits. Please discontinue emailing the exhibits to the Commissioner prior to the hearing. Counsel will still need to file the exhibits online and exchange the exhibits with opposing counsel at least 3 days prior to the hearing. Also, ensure that the cover page of the exhibits contains the name of counsel filing the exhibit and a contact number where counsel may be reached. Having a direct contact number (and not just the firm’s main number) is essential in case the Commissioner’s office needs to reach counsel. These changes are effective immediately.

  • PREPARE FOR YOUR VIDEO HEARING (link):  2/25/21: Instructions for Video Hearings, Exhibit Submissions and COVID-19 Courtroom Protocols.

  • We have noted many unnecessary last minute requests for postponement or issues are being withdrawn at the last minute. This late action impacts everyone and severely hampers the ability of the Commission to timely set priority cases.   During this time when the number of cases that can be set are reduced, it is imperative that attorneys plan accordingly. The Commission asks that whenever possible, you file requests for postponements or withdraw issues far enough in advance that another case can be set.
