Briefs must be captioned with the Board case title and number, and must be typewritten or printed with double spacing on letter-sized paper.
Briefs must substantially comply with the following format:
Brief statement of pertinent facts;
Statement and discussion of disputed issues supported by available precedent; and
Concise summary of reasons for granting requested relief.
Briefs shall not exceed 30 pages, unless expressly permitted by the Board or Board Agent.
Once the Board Agent establishes a brief filing date, parties must ask the Board Agent for an extension of time. Parties must provide the Board Agent with any other partys position to the extension request. An opposed extension request will be granted only for good cause.
The Board or Board Agent may disregard any brief (or portion of a brief) that fails to comply with this rule.
Reply briefs will not be accepted, unless expressly permitted by the Board or Board Agent.
