Do I have a right to a hearing before the Director of OARM on the merits of my request for corrective action?

No. You are not automatically entitled to a hearing on your request for corrective action. A hearing may be held at the discretion of OARM where you have presented a legal claim supported by sufficient evidence of a triable issue of fact. Notably, however, during the course of the proceedings on your request for corrective action, either party may request (or OARM may order) a conference with the Director of OARM to address matters such as the status of the case, jurisdiction, discovery, etc.

How do I request a hearing before the Director of OARM?

A request for a hearing must be submitted in writing to the Director of OARM. A request for a hearing should:

Include a list of all agreed upon material facts;
Identify any disputed material issues of fact that need resolution through testimonial evidence; and
State that the other party has been consulted and either agrees or disagrees with the need for a hearing.
