Subject: Conduct of Hearings
This transmittal amends section I-2-6-78 of the Hearings, Appeals and Litigation Law manual to add information regarding how administrative law judges (ALJ) conduct hearings based on new regulations on the submission of evidence.
I-2-6-78 – We added information from the new regulations on submission of evidence, including information the ALJ must tell the claimant and representative at the hearing. We also included a new question the ALJ must ask the claimant and representative before closing the hearing. We made other minor technical and grammatical edits.
