FINRA Discipline: FINRA Rule 9220

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC:

This is the sixth of a series of posts to discuss the rules associated with the FINRA disciplinary process. FINRA Rule 9220 states that at any time before the issuance of a decision by a hearing panel, the hearing officer can extend or shorten the time limits set by FINRA for filing required documents. In addition, the rule allows a hearing officer to change the venue of the hearing and postpone the commencement of the hearing. 

There is a time limit, however, for postponements. The rule states that postponements, adjournments, or extensions of time for filing papers, should not exceed 28 days unless a hearing officer provides an explanation as to why a longer period is necessary.
