Chief Judge’s Directive
No. 5: Motions Practice in Workers’ Compensation Hearings*
(a) Parties and counsel should pay close attention to Division of Workers Compensation Rule VIII, L governing the location of filing of motions. Doing so will expedite the determination of your motion.
(b) Prior to filing any motion the parties are encouraged to confer with each other in good faith regarding the subject matter of the motion and attempt to reach agreement regarding the subject of the motion. If the motion still must be filed, the party filing the motion should describe in the motion what attempts were made to resolve the issue prior to filing the motion.
(c) If a motion is uncontested, by agreement of the parties, that fact should be conspicuously noted in the caption of the motion.
