The Minnesota Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH), Administrative Law Division, is considering a series of amendments to its procedural rules.
The object of these revisions is to streamline hearing practices across different types of administrative proceedings, better reflect the technological changes that have occurred since September of 2001 (when the last revision of OAH's proedural rules was completed) and more closely align OAH hearing procedures with the General Rules of Practice of the District Courts.
The OAH invites comments and suggestions from members of the public on possible revisions to its procedural rules. Interested members of the public are invited to e-mail, mail, fax, or deliver public comments to Assistant Chief Judge Eric Lipman concerning the proposed rules. His contact information is as follows:
Honorable Eric L. Lipman
Assistant Chief Administrative Law Judge
600 North Robert Street
P.O. Box 64620
Saint Paul, Minnesota 55164-0620
The comment period ends at 4:30 p.m. CST on Wednesday, October 31, 2012.
