FINRA Discipline: FINRA Rule 9222

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC:

This is the eighth in a series of posts to discuss the rules associated with the FINRA disciplinary process. FINRA Rule 9222 gives a hearing panel, through a hearing officer, the authority to extend or shorten the time limits set forth by the FINRA Code for filing any documents and postponing or adjourning any hearing during the disciplinary process.  

In considering a motion for the postponement of the start of a hearing, a hearing officer will examine the length and stage of the proceeding at the time of the request, the number of postponements, adjournments, or extensions already granted, and any potential harm to the investing public if an extension of time, adjournment, or postponement is granted.
