(A) Except as otherwise provided in Chapter 4117. of the Revised Code, the board, board member, or administrative law judge may, upon its own motion or upon the motion of any party, continue the hearing, extend the time to file any document, or change the place at which the hearing is to be held and shall so notify the parties, provided that this provision shall not apply to hearings conducted pursuant to divisions (C) and (G) of section 4117.14 of the Revised Code. The executive director or the office of the general counsel may rule on extensions of time to file exceptions to a proposed order or recommended determination, cross-exceptions, or responses to exceptions, or any non-dispositive motions in cases pending before the board.
(B) Before a party files a motion for an extension of time to file any document or for a continuance of a hearing, the moving party shall consult all other parties to determine whether they have any objection to the motion. If no objections are raised, the moving party shall state that the other parties have been consulted and that they authorize the moving party to represent that they have no objection to the motion. Compliance with this rule does not supplant the service requirement of rules 4117-1-02 and 4117-1-04 of the Administrative Code.
