Motions, Responses, and Replies
A motion must be made in writing unless otherwise allowed by the Commission or ALJ.
Before filing a procedural motion, the moving party must make a good faith effort to confer with other parties to seek agreement about the subject of the motion. A procedural motion must describe the effort to confer and the result of the effort.
A party may file a response to a motion. A response to a substantive motion must be filed within 15 days of filing of the motion. A response to a procedural motion must be filed within 7 days of filing of the motion.
The moving party may file a reply to a response to a substantive motion within 7 days of filing of the response. The moving party is not permitted to file a reply to a response to a procedural motion unless permitted by the ALJ.
If expedited consideration of a motion is requested, the moving party must:
Certify that the moving party has attempted to contact the other parties to the proceedings to discuss the motion and state whether the parties support the motion;
Identify the request for expedited consideration in the document caption; and
Include a request to shorten the time for responses and, if applicable, replies.
Unless granted by the ALJ, a request for an extension or other related motion does not stay a pending due date.
