SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On September 8, 1999 (64 FR 48707), the Federal Mine Safety and Health Review Commission published in the Federal Register as final rules various amendments to its procedural rules. With respect to § 2700.76, the Commission's procedural rule relating to interlocutory review, the Commission intended to revise only the introductory text of paragraph (a), and to leave unchanged paragraphs (a)(1) and(a)(2), as well as paragraphs (b) through (d). As published, paragraphs (a)(1) and (a)(2) were inadvertently omitted from § 2700.76.

Need for Correction

As published, § 2700.76(a) does not contain paragraphs (a)(1) and (a)(2), which were intended to be included in the rule. This document corrects that omission and restores those paragraphs which were inadvertently omitted.

End Amendment Part
Interlocutory review.

(a) Procedure. Interlocutory review by the Commission shall not be a matter of right but of the sound discretion of the Commission. Procedures governing petitions for review of temporary reinstatement orders are found at § 2700.45(f).

(1) Review cannot be granted unless:

(i) The judge has certified, upon his own motion or the motion of a party, that his interlocutory ruling involves a controlling question of law and that in his opinion immediate review will materially advance the final disposition of the proceeding; or

(ii) The Judge has denied a party's motion for certification of the interlocutory ruling to the Commission, and the party files with the Commission a petition for interlocutory review within 30 days of the Judge's denial of such motion for certification.

(2) In the case of either paragraph (a)(1)(i) or (ii) of this section, the Commission, by a majority vote of the full Commission or a majority vote of a duly constituted panel of the Commission, may grant interlocutory review upon a determination that the Judge's interlocutory ruling involves a controlling question of law and that immediate review may materially advance the final disposition of the proceeding. Interlocutory review by the Commission shall not operate to suspend the hearing unless otherwise ordered by the Commission. Any grant or denial of interlocutory review shall be by written order of the Commission.
