Model Rules for Lawyers' Funds for Client Protection - Rule 13

RULE 13 REQUEST FOR RECONSIDERATION

The claimant or respondent may request reconsideration in writing within 30 days of the denial or determination of the amount of a claim. If the claimant or respondent fails to make a request or the request is denied, the decision of the Board is final and there is no further right or appeal.


Comment

This Rule establishes a procedure to provide an opportunity for reconsideration of a claim. It permits claimants or respondents further consideration without creating a right of appeal or judicial review. The opportunity for reconsideration also provides a safeguard against dismissal of a claim not fully presented earlier.
