(A) At any time prior to the issuance of a final decision and order in an appeal, a board member or attorney examiner may request briefs from the parties. A party may also file a brief without being so requested. Briefs shall be filed within the time limits set by the board member or attorney examiner. An extension of time within which a brief is to be filed, may be requested, in writing, from the attorney examiner assigned to the case. If any party fails to submit a brief within the established time limit, the board may proceed to determine the appeal and exclude the brief from its consideration. After the deadline for submission of briefs has passed, a party may file, as additional authority, relevant cases subsequently decided, but without further argument.
(B) With the exception of this board's decisions, copies of any unreported decisions cited in a brief shall be attached to the brief.
(C) Briefs amicus curiae may be filed with leave of the board and shall be filed according to the briefing deadlines established by the board.
