For purposes of review, appeals will follow the same procedure as preliminary hearing orders.
For the purposes of review, the procedure for final orders will be the same as for awards.
Two or More Parties Requesting Review of an Award
If two or more parties request review of an award/order, the party who filed first is the appellant and all others are appellees. If all parties file on the same day, the claimant is the appellant.
Briefs may be in letter form. If relying on the submission letter to the ALJ, please reference that information in a cover letter to the Board and provide 5 copies.
As with requests for review, you may fax briefs to the Board or file them with any division office. When faxing, it is not necessary to fax exhibits. Five copies are required for the Board.
Extensions to file briefs are not routinely granted. However, the Board will issue an extension for up to 10 days on the first request. The request should be in written form and faxed or mailed to the Board. Extraordinary events will be accommodated.
Dismissal of Case/ Case Settled or Resolved
When a case has settled or the issues are resolved, please notify the Board immediately. A letter will then be sent from the Board requesting that an agreed order of dismissal be prepared and signed by all parties. The order should be prepared for signature by three Board members.
Certification of Record to Appellate Courts
Supreme Court Rule 9.04 gives responsibility for certification of the record for cases being appealed to the Court of Appeals/Supreme Court to the Board.
