MEMORANDUM

 

TO:         All Interested Parties

FROM:   Stephen T. Gheen, Chief Deputy Commissioner

DATE:    January 3, 2005

RE:         March 2005 Trial Docket/Advisories

Effective today, workers’ compensation cases tentatively identified for docketing in March 2005 are posted on our website at http://www.comp.state.nc.us. The link to the March 2005 list of cases is located on the front page of the website, identified as “Master List of Cases For Docketing, March 2005, by Deputy Commissioner Section” (located below the section “Bankruptcies, Liquidations and Rehabilitations”). Cases identified for docketing in March 2005 are posted by Region/IC File Number, Alpha Plaintiff, and Alpha Defendant.

Requests for continuances, removals and potential additions are due no later than 12:00 noon, Friday, January 14, 2005. All requests should include the reason for the request with a copy to opposing counsel or the pro se party. If the case is still in mediation or should be mediated, please note this fact specifically. Continuances, removals and potential additions should be requested by email transmission to gheen@ind.commerce.state.nc.us.

Trial counsel are reminded that ANY case anticipated to require four or more hours for hearing is considered a “special set.” The Deputy Commissioner Section schedules “special set” cases on individual dockets to accommodate anticipated length of hearing. Counsel should review the cases posted and identify those cases that qualify as a “special set.” Immediately contact my office by email, including the anticipated length of hearing, in order to properly schedule these cases.

SPECIAL NOTE: We strongly prefer receiving requests by email without follow up letters. We request that the stated reasons be made briefly and entirely within the body of the email. Sending requests as attachments to emails are discouraged unless absolutely necessary. We appreciate the professionalism of parties and counsel preparing formal letters and transmitting them as attachments. However, the Industrial Commission’s current email program makes it difficult to retransmit attachments to the various sections when a case is removed from the master docket. Therefore, we ask for simple email messages.
 

We strongly encourage trial counsel to determine early in the process if there are cases that can be settled. Traditionally, a number of cases are settled near the actual hearing date. An earlier determination would assist our docket management in March 2005.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
