The commission delegates to the executive secretary authority to approve the withdrawal of a filing. Approval will be granted by the executive secretary if the following conditions are met:
the party that submitted the filing has requested that the filing be withdrawn and has served notice on the persons listed on the official service list;
no person has expressed opposition to withdrawal of the filing within 14 days of service of the notice; and
no commissioner or commission staff person has identified a reason that the matter should not be withdrawn.
If any person opposes a withdrawal request within 14 days of service of the notice, the commission will allow a filing to be withdrawn at the request of the filing party if the commission determines that the proposed withdrawal:
does not contravene the public interest;
does not prejudice any party; and
does not concern a filing that raises issues requiring commission action.
If the commission determines that withdrawal would contravene the public interest or would prejudice a party, the commission may permit withdrawal only subject to conditions that mitigate the harm identified.
