  • 1The Respondent may file a written motion to dismiss the complaint for lack of jurisdiction stating with particularity the grounds therefor. A copy shall be served on the Advocate, who may file a written response within ten days of service of the motion. The Commission shall hear the arguments of the Respondent and Advocate on such a motion immediately prior to the probable cause hearing.

If the Commission finds that it has no jurisdiction over any matter alleged in the complaint, it shall order the complaint dismissed and shall proceed in accordance with Rule 13934-12.720, 140F.A.C., as if the complaint had been found insufficient and dismissed without investigation.
