RULE §157.12Failure to Attend Hearing; Default Judgment

(a) 1 TAC §155.501 and §155.503 (relating to Default Proceedings and Dismissal Proceedings) (SOAH rules) apply where a respondent fails to appear in person or through his legal representative on the day and at the time set for hearing in a contested case, regardless of whether an appearance has been entered and the Board's staff moves either for dismissal of the case from SOAH's docket or for the issuance of a default proposal for decision by the judge. In either case, the Board shall enter a default judgment in the matter adverse to the respondent who has failed to attend the hearing, upon proper proof of notice to the defaulting party.

(b) For purposes of this section, a default judgment shall mean the issuance of a final order against the respondent in which the factual allegations against the respondent contained in the notice sent to respondent pursuant to §157.9 of this chapter (relating to Notice of Hearing) or the petition filed at SOAH shall be admitted as prima facie evidence and deemed admitted as true, without any requirement for additional proof to be submitted to the Board prior to the Board entering the final order.
