The hearing examiner shall file a written decision, including any order issued, and shall serve copies on all parties.

If, after consideration of the foregoing, the hearing examiner determines that there is no genuine issue as to any material fact and that the moving party is entitled to the outcome requested as a matter of law, the hearing examiner shall submit to the director a report and recommendation pursuant to rule 3745-47-16 of the Administrative Code without holding an adjudication hearing.
