I-4-141 DUPLICATE COMPLAINTS

A claimant may file a new complaint following an ALJ or Appeals Council final decision issued after court remand. Because the case is already pending in court, the new complaint may duplicate the existing cause of action. The clerk must send a form memorandum to OGC advising them of this duplicate filing (see > I-4-199, Exhibit J). OGC will then move to have the new complaint dismissed or consolidated with the prior civil action.
