81-11-7. Appearances. (a) The filing of a request for hearing shall constitute a general appearance before the commissioner by the requesting party and shall act as an acknowledgment that service of the order or notice was complete upon the requesting party. No special appearance shall be recognized.
(b) If an aggrieved party appears in any proceeding with an attorney, service upon the aggrieved party is complete upon service of the attorney.
(c) Any attorney who will appear with an aggrieved party and who was not named in the request for hearing, shall file a written appearance stating the attorney's name, address and telephone number, and specifying whom the attorney will represent in the proceeding.
(d) The person who signed the verification on the request for hearing shall appear personally at the hearing. Failure to so appear shall constitute grounds for default against the aggrieved party who filed the request for hearing. Appearance by attorney only or by another controlling person shall be insufficient unless permitted by the commissioner for good cause shown. Any person so permitted to appear shall verify an amended request for hearing.
