Reminder: Review Responding Party’s Company Name when Filing Cases

Image of a string tied around a fingerWe’ve recently received feedback from members being added to cases in error due to their company name being similar to the actual responding company’s name. Naming the incorrect responder can create added work for filers, including needing to refile and incur a new filing fee. These errors can also cause delays in having cases heard.

To promote time saving for both parties, we encourage filers to carefully review the spelling and company code when entering a responding company to a case.

As a reminder, the TRS Guide for Filers provides a step-by-step view on filing a case, including how to better define results when selecting an adverse party (Page 11).
