ORDERS:

ORDER OF DISMISSAL FOR DEFAULT

On February 12, 1999, an ORDER was issued to all parties requiring the filing of a Prehearing Statement within fifteen (15) days of the date of that ORDER. Given the additional five (5) day extension allowed for mailing under ALJD Rule 5(C), the Prehearing Statement was due on March 4, 1999. Respondent, Jerry W. Steen failed to file the Prehearing Statement.



On March 16, 1999, Respondent was again directed to file the Prehearing Statement on or before Monday, March 22, 1999. No Prehearing Statement was received by the close of business on the extension date of March 22, 1999, and thus Respondent failed to comply with the Order.



Upon a party's failure to defend an action or upon a failure to adhere to an interlocutory order, the Administrative Law Judge may dismiss a contested case in a manner so as to uphold the position of the party in compliance. ALJD Rule 23. Therefore, IT IS ORDERED:



1. Due to the Respondent's failure to prosecute this action, the Respondent is in default.

2. South Carolina Department of Insurance, having complied in this matter, is not in default.

3. As the result of the default, the case is dismissed and the action is ended.



AND IT IS SO ORDERED.
