General Rule 24
A. The facsimile capabilities of the OAC are limited. Parties are encouraged to avoid filing pleadings by facsimile copy, except when reasonably required by time constraints.
B. Subject to the limitations of Rule 24(C), facsimile copies may be filed with the OAC in lieu of the original document. If a facsimile copy is filed in lieu of the original document, the attorney or party filing the facsimile copy shall retain the original document for production to the administrative law judge, if requested. If an original or copy of a pleading in addition to the facsimile filing is filed with the OAC the additional copy or original may be discarded and not made part of the OAC file.
C. Pleadings or other documents in excess of 10 pages (excluding the cover sheet) may not be filed by facsimile copy in lieu of the original document unless otherwise ordered by the administrative law judge.
D. Facsimile copies shall be accompanied by a cover sheet that states the title of the document, case number, number of pages, identity and voice telephone number of the transmitter and any instructions.
