Discussion of the whole issue of pre-hearings. The committee discussed the possibility of hearing all the cases beyond the ones that did not meet requirements such as timeliness, court issue, etc. It was decided to continue with the current plans to decline and have the internal policy workgroup look at the criteria again. Immediately there needs to be a reason to decline, second to support, and if there is no second the default is to hear the case.
