Abandonment of Appeal

When appeal was dismissed for appellant’s failure to file a pre-hearing statement, he failed to present extraordinary circumstances to set aside dismissal where he stated he was ill but produced no medical letter, and stated he received show-cause order late, but failed to attach even a late pre-hearing statement. In re Maestas, CSA 33-11, 1 (Order 8/9/11).

Motions to set aside final orders will be considered only upon a showing of extraordinary circumstances. In re Maestas, CSA 33-11, 1 (Order 8/9/11).

An appeal that is withdrawn will be dismissed with prejudice.
In re Long, CSA 78-07 (6/10/08).

Appellant abandoned his appeal when he failed to file a status report as ordered, failed to request a continuance or extension of time, and failed
 to keep the hearing office informed of his current contact information. In re Fernandez, CSA 17-08 (5/19/08).

Where appellant responded only to some of the issues raised in a show cause order, unaddressed issues are dismissed as abandoned. In re Kemp, CSA 07-08 (2/19/08).

Appeal was dismissed as abandoned when appellant failed to file a prehearing statement, request an extension of time to do so, or respond to a telephone message left by hearing office staff. In re Trujillo, CSA 23-06 (5/16/06).

Appeal was dismissed as abandoned when appellant failed to respond to show cause order or file a request for extension of time to do so.
