(1) A request for hearing may be dismissed if
an Administrative Law Judge finds that the party that requested the hearing has
abandoned the request for hearing or has engaged in conduct that has resulted
in an unjustified delay in the hearing of more than 60 days.
(2) Unjustified failure of a party or the
party's representative to attend a scheduled hearing is a waiver of appearance.
If the party that waives appearance is the party that requested the hearing,
the Administrative Law Judge shall dismiss the request for hearing as having
been abandoned unless extraordinary circumstances justify postponement or
continuance of the hearing.
