HALLEX
Volume I

Transmittal No. I-2-12

Chapter: I-2-100 and I-2-500

Subject: Prehearing Case Analysis and Workup and Securing Evidence

Background

The former Office of Hearings and Appeals Handbook contained procedures for requesting a district office (DO) employee to appear and testify as a witness at a hearing. These procedures were not included in HALLEX, but they continue to be the correct procedures. The Chief Administrative Law Judge summarized these procedures in his Reminders memorandum issued on July 22, 1991; specifically, in the reminder item “District Office (DO) Employee as a Witness.”

Explanation of Content and Changes

This transmittal incorporates said procedures into HALLEX by adding new HALLEX section I-2-571, Field Office Employee as a Witness. It also adds a cross-reference to the new HALLEX section in section I-2-105, Conducting Prehearing Case Analysis and Workup. In the interest of consistency, the term “Field Office” is used instead of “District Office.”
