ORDER OF DISMISSAL

This matter comes before me pursuant to a Motion of the Petitioner, the State of South Carolina Department of Insurance, to declare the Respondent, Eric D. Satcher, in default and to dismiss and dispose the above-captioned case adverse to the Respondent.

FINDINGS OF FACT AND CONCLUSIONS OF LAW

1. By my order dated April 29, 1996, the parties to this case were required to file a Prehearing Statement within fifteen (15) days, or by May 14, 1996.

2. The Petitioner filed its Agency Prehearing Statement on May 2, 1996, and an Amended Prehearing Statement on May 14, 1996. According to the Certificates of Service on file, copies of both of these documents were provided to the Respondent.

3. Although the Respondent has been given ample notice and opportunity, he has not filed any Prehearing Statement as required by the April 29, 1996, Order. Further, 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. Therefore, the Respondent is in default in this case.

4. 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.



ORDER

IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that this action be and is hereby dismissed with prejudice.

AND IT IS SO ORDERED.
