Dispositive motions.

(1) A dispositive motion could dispose of one or all the issues in a formal administrative hearing, such as a motion to dismiss or motion for summary judgment.
(2) To request a dispositive motion hearing a party must file a written dispositive motion with the hearing officer and serve a copy of the motion to all other parties. The hearing officer may also set a dispositive motion hearing, and request briefing from the parties, to address any possible dispositive issues the hearing officer believes must be addressed before the hearing.
(3) The deadline to file a timely dispositive motion must be ten calendar days before the scheduled hearing.
(4) Upon receiving a dispositive motion, a hearing officer:
(a) Must convert the scheduled hearing to a dispositive motion hearing when:
(i) The dispositive motion is timely filed with the hearing officer at least ten calendar days before the date of the hearing; and
(ii) The party filing the dispositive motion has not previously filed a dispositive motion.
(b) May schedule a dispositive motion hearing in all instances other than described in (a) of this subsection.
(5) The hearing officer may conduct the dispositive motion hearing in person or by telephone conference. For dispositive motion hearings scheduled to be held in person, the HCA hearing representative may choose to attend and participate in person or by telephone conference call.
(6) The party requesting the dispositive motion hearing must attend and participate in the dispositive motion hearing in person or by telephone. If the party requesting the motion hearing does not attend and participate in the dispositive motion hearing, the hearing officer will enter an order dismissing the dispositive motion.
(7) During a dispositive motion hearing, the hearing officer can only consider the filed dispositive motions, any response to the motions, evidence submitted to support or oppose the motions, and argument on the motions. Prior to rescheduling any necessary hearings, the hearing officer must serve a written order on the dispositive motions.
(8) The hearing officer must serve the written order on the dispositive motions to all parties no later than eighteen calendar days after the dispositive motion hearing is held. Orders on dispositive motions are subject to motions for reconsideration or petitions for judicial review as described in WAC 182-16-2120 and 182-16-2130.
