We are closed Friday, January 1st, 2021 in observance of New
Year's Day and Monday, January 18th in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Practitioners Take Note:
Exhibits for hearings are REQUIRED to be uploaded to the
case file at least three (3) days prior to the hearing.
Practitioners are not complying with this requirement.
The Commission expects ALL attorneys to comply and
submit their exhibits timely.
No paper documents will be accepted at the hearing.|
The Commission notes that there have been 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issues are being withdrawn at the last minute.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.
Updated procedures for video hearings, are posted at this link:
Instructions for Video Hearings, Exhibit Submissions and
COVID-19 Courtroom Protocols. |
When a claim requested as
VRH is already scheduled for an onsite hearing, you must
also submit a Request for Continuance of that hearing,
noting the VRH as the justification.
