OAR 471-040-0021
Postponement of Hearing


At the request of a party or on the administrative law judge’s own initiative, an administrative law judge may order, orally or in writing, that a hearing be postponed.


A postponement may be granted by Office of Administrative Hearings staff at the request of a party if:


The request is promptly made after the party becomes aware of the need for postponement; and


The party has good cause, as stated in the request, for not attending the hearing at the time and date set.


For the purpose of subsection (2)(b) of this rule, good cause exists when:


The circumstances causing the request are beyond the reasonable control of the requesting party; and


Failure to grant the postponement would result in undue hardship to the requesting party.
