176.307 Compensation judges; block system

The chief administrative law judge must assign workers' compensation cases to compensation judges using a block system type of assignment that, among other things, ensures that a case will remain with the same judge from commencement to conclusion unless the judge is removed from the case by exercise of a legal right of a party or by incapacity. The block system must be the principal means of assigning cases, but it may be supplemented by other systems of case assignment to ensure that cases are timely decided.
