SCDOI vs. Thomas E. Britt

AGENCY:
South Carolina Department of Insurance

Petitioner:
South Carolina Department of Insurance

Respondent:
Thomas E. Britt
 
DOCKET NUMBER:
05-ALJ-09-0453-CC

APPEARANCES:
n/a
 

ORDERS:

ORDER OF DISMISSAL

This matter is before me pursuant to a request for a contested case hearing filed by Thomas E. Britt on November 19, 2003. On November 23, 2005, the Honorable Ray N. Stevens issued an Order for Prehearing Statements in which each party was given thirty (30) days to submit their Prehearing Statement. Pursuant to that Order, the South Carolina Department of Insurance timely submitted its Prehearing Statement but Respondent did not. By letter dated January 10, 2006, Respondent was granted an additional ten (10) days to submit his Prehearing Statement. As of the date of this Order of Dismissal, this office has received no contact, either verbally or in writing, from Respondent or anyone representing Respondent. Furthermore, no correspondence has been returned to the Administrative Law Court (ALC or Court) as “unclaimed.”

Based on the foregoing, this action is dismissed pursuant to ALC Rule 23, with prejudice. Rule 23 provides:

The administrative law judge may dismiss a contested case or dispose of a contested case adverse to the defaulting party. A default occurs when a party fails to plead or otherwise prosecute or defend, fails to appear at a hearing without the proper consent of the judge or fails to comply with any interlocutory order of the administrative law judge. Any non-defaulting party may move for an order dismissing the case or terminating it adversely to the defaulting party.

Because Respondent has failed to file his Prehearing Statement and has not otherwise contacted this tribunal as of the issuance of this Order,

IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that this matter is dismissed with prejudice.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Resident Insurance Producer’s License of Thomas E. Britt be revoked.

AND IT IS SO ORDERED.
