Wash. Admin. Code § 242-03-555 - Dispositive motions

Current through Register Vol. 22-07, April 1, 2022

(1) Dispositive motions on a limited record to determine the board's jurisdiction, the standing of a petitioner, or the timeliness of the petition are permitted. The board rarely entertains a motion for summary judgment except in a case of failure to act by a statutory deadline or a procedural challenge to the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) compliance.
(2) Dispositive motions and responses shall be filed by the dates established in the prehearing order. The board may refuse to hear a motion that is not timely filed, except where good cause is shown.
(3) The presiding officer, taking into consideration the complexity and finality of the issues raised, may, in the presiding officer's discretion, request a reply brief from the moving party, schedule a telephonic hearing for argument of the motion or may defer the board's consideration of the motion until the hearing on the merits.
(4) Unless the order on dispositive motions is a final order pursuant to WAC 242-03-030(9), no motion for reconsideration will be allowed.
