1104.01000 – In General; Conduct of Hearing
Motion to strike party’s closing brief for failure to serve opposing party denied. By filing brief with PERB in a timely manner, party demonstrated a conscientious effort to comply with PERB’s filing regulations, and opposing party has not alleged any prejudice as a result of having been served approximately one week late. Considering that neither party was given the opportunity to file additional briefs, it is doubtful such a showing can be made. This ruling is consistent with California policy favoring resolution of disputes on their merits.
