22-618 . Failure to appear for hearing.
If a certified court reporter or certified court monitor who has requested a hearing does not appear, and no continuance has been granted, the board or hearing officer may hear the testimony of witnesses who have appeared, and the board may proceed to consider the matter and dispose of it on the basis of the evidence before it. If because of accident, sickness or other good cause a certified court reporter or certified court monitor fails to appear for a hearing requested by the reporter or monitor, the court reporter or court monitor may within a reasonable time apply to the board to reopen the proceedings, and the board upon finding good cause shall immediately set a time and place for a hearing and give the court reporter or court monitor notice thereof as required by these rules. At that time and place, a hearing shall be held in the same manner as the hearing set by the original notice.
