ORDER DISMISSING HEARING AND REVOKING LICENSE

This matter comes before me pursuant to a motion of the Petitioner, The State of South Carolina Department of Insurance, to declare the Respondent, William A. Turner, in default and to dismiss and dispose the above-captioned case adverse to the Respondent.

FINDINGS OF FACT

1. By my order dated May 29, 1996, the parties to this case were required to file a Prehearing Statement within fifteen (15) days or by June 13, 1996.

2. The Petitioner filed its Agency Prehearing Statement on June 13, 1996. According to the Certificates of Service on file, copies of both of these documents were provided to the Respondent.

3. Although the Respondent had been given ample notice and opportunity, he only filed a Prehearing Statement at the Court's urging on July 17, 1996, when he otherwise would have been eighteen (18) days in default. Further, the Prehearing Statement filed was devoid of the information sought by the Court and contained only the Respondent's dated signature, address, and telephone number.



4. No notice of appearance or other pleading from the Respondent has been served upon or received by the Petitioner or the Administrative Law Judge Division in response to that order.

S 5. Rule 23, Rules of Procedure for the Administrative Law Judge Division, allows an Administrative Law Judge to dispose of a contested case adverse to a party for its failure to plead or comply with any interlocutory order of the Administrative Law Judge.

CONCLUSION OF LAW

The Respondent is in default in this case, and the Petitioner is entitled to have this matter dismissed and disposed of accordingly.

NOW, THEREFORE, pursuant to my findings of fact and conclusion of law, it is

ORDERED, upon motion of the Petitioner, that this action be and is hereby dismissed, with prejudice, and forever ended. It is

FURTHER ORDERED, that Respondent's Bail Bondsman's License is hereby revoked pursuant to S.C. Code Ann. § 38-53-150 (Supp. 1995).

AND IT IS SO ORDERED.
