Kan. Admin. Regs. § 51-18-4 - Time schedule for briefs on review; summary calendar

Current through Register Vol. 40, No. 39, September 30, 2021

(a) Following an application for review by the workers compensation board, each brief that a party files shall be served upon opposing counsel and thereafter filed with the workers compensation board, division of workers compensation, according to the following schedule.
(1) The appellant's brief shall be submitted within 30 days from the date of filing the application for review.
(2) The appellee's brief shall be submitted within 20 days thereafter.
(3) The appellant may submit a reply brief limited to new issues raised in the appellee's brief within 10 days thereafter.

An original and five copies of each brief shall be filed with the workers compensation board. Every brief shall be supplied in two copies to all counsel of record.

(b) The workers compensation board may maintain a summary calendar. If a review involves no new questions of law and if oral argument is not deemed necessary for a fair hearing of the case, the workers compensation board may set the case on the summary calendar. When a case is placed on the summary calendar, it shall be deemed submitted to the board without oral argument unless a motion by one of the parties for oral argument is granted. This motion shall be served on all parties and filed with the board within 10 days after notice of calendaring has been mailed by the board and shall set forth the reasons why it is thought that oral argument would be helpful to the board.
