Rule 1509-1-16 | Continuances.
Continuances may be ordered by the commission on its own motion, or may be granted by the commission in its discretion, upon application of any party, filed in writing and showing good and sufficient cause therefor. If such application is made, it must be made not less than seven days prior to the date set for hearing. An application for continuance must be directed to the commission and not to an individual commission member, and may be acted upon only by the commission. This rule shall be without prejudice to the right of the commission to continue a hearing to a later date.
