Section 300.1090 Conduct in a Formal Hearing
a) The ALJ shall conduct and control the hearing, which will be confined to the factual and/or legal issues of the claim. The ALJ will ensure that all parties who have appeared have a reasonable opportunity to present all relevant evidence and testimony regarding the issues.
b) Witnesses may be questioned and cross-examined by any party or that party's attorney, except the other representative, and further questioned by the ALJ, if necessary, to ensure clarity and completeness of the issues and of the record.
c) If any person becomes abusive or disruptive so that a full and fair hearing cannot be conducted, the ALJ shall exclude that person from the hearing. The ALJ shall then move forward with the hearing without the participation of the excluded individual and will render a decision based on the evidence in the record.
