(1) An order of dismissal is an order sent by the ALJ to end the hearing. The order is made because the party who requested the hearing withdrew the request, failed to appear, or refused to participate, resulting in a default.
(2) If your hearing is dismissed because you did not appear or refused to participate, the DSHS decision stands.
(3) If the hearing is dismissed due to a written agreement between the parties, the parties must follow the agreement.
