what happens to liens when CIC resolves by stipulations but AA files petition to re-open for new and further? The lien claimant provided treatment for the stip body part. Can lien file a DOR and set for trial? or have to wait until re-open is addressed?

You can file a DOR for a Lien Conference to adjudicate all DOS prior to the petition to Reopen.

Thanks steve I though so but a WCJ claimed you cannot. Do you have any authority on the subject, statutory, regulatory or case law? WCJ OTOC'd then threatened to sanction.

I'm not aware of any statute or case law on point, but I'm sure Law Advocate would know if it is out there.
