4901-1-07 Computation of time.

Unless otherwise provided by law or by the commission:

(A) In computing any period of time prescribed or allowed by the commission, the date of the event from which the period of time begins to run shall not be included. The last day of the period so computed shall be included, unless it falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, in which case the period of time shall run until the end of the next day that is not a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday. Unless otherwise noted, time is measured in calendar, not business, days.

(B) Whenever a party is permitted or required to take some action within a prescribed period of time after a pleading or other paper is served upon him or her and service is made by mail, three days shall be added to the prescribed period of time.

(C) Whenever a party is permitted or required to take some action within a prescribed period of time after a pleading or other paper is served upon him or her and service is made by personal, facsimile transmission, or electronic message (e-mail) service and is completed after five thirty p.m., one day shall be added to the prescribed period of time. The applicable time zone is the time zone where the recipient is located, but it may not be earlier than the actual close of the commission offices.

(D) If the commission office is closed to the public for the entire day that constitutes the last day for doing an act or closes before its usual closing time on that day, the act may be performed on the next succeeding day that is not a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday.
