Current through April 9, 2022

(a) Unless otherwise ordered by the hearing officer, each party to a contested case shall file and serve on all other parties and the hearing officer a prehearing disclosure statement setting forth:
(i) a complete list of all witnesses who will or may testify, together with information on how that witness may be contacted and a brief description of the testimony the witness is expected to give in the case. If a deposition is to be offered into evidence, the original shall be filed with the referring agency, with a copy provided to the hearing officer or adjudicative agency;
(ii) a statement of the specific claims, defenses, and issues which the party asserts are before the hearing officer for hearing;
(iii) a statement of the burden of proof to be assigned in the contested case with reference to specific regulatory, statutory, constitutional, or other authority established by relevant case law;
(iv) a statement identifying stipulated facts. If the parties are unable to stipulate to facts, the parties shall indicate what efforts have been made to stipulate to facts and the reasons facts cannot be stipulated; and
(v) a complete list and copies of all documents, statements, etc., which the party will or may introduce into evidence.
(b) Parties shall file and serve prehearing disclosure statements on or before the date established by the hearing officer.
(c) The information provided in a prehearing disclosure statement shall be binding on each party throughout the course of the contested case unless modified for good cause.
(d) Additional witnesses or exhibits may be added only if the need to do so was not reasonably foreseeable at the time of filing of the prehearing disclosure statement, it would not unfairly prejudice other parties, and good cause is shown.
(e) The hearing officer may modify the requirements of a prehearing disclosure statement.
(f) Failure to file a prehearing disclosure statement may result in the hearing officer's striking of witnesses, exhibits, claims and defenses, or dismissal of the contested case.
(g) If a prehearing order is entered, the prehearing order shall control the course of the hearing.
