13308. Loss of Defenses Due to Untimely or Incomplete Answer

This rule is no longer applicable. NASD Rule 13308 has been superseded by FINRA Rule 13308. Please consult the appropriate FINRA Rule.

The Industry Code will apply to claims filed on or after April 16, 2007. In addition, the list selection provisions of the Industry Code will apply to previously filed claims in which a list of arbitrators must be generated after April 16, 2007; in these cases, however, the claim will continue to be governed by the remaining provisions of the old Code unless all parties agree to proceed under the new Code.

(a) If a party does not answer within the time period specified in the Code, the panel may, upon motion, bar that party from presenting any defenses or facts at the hearing, unless the time to answer was extended in accordance with the Code. The party may also be subject to default proceedings under Rule 13801, if the conditions of Rule 13801(a) apply.
(b) If a party answers a claim that alleges specific facts and contentions with a general denial, or fails to include defenses or relevant facts in its answer that were known to it at the time the answer was filed, the panel may bar that party from presenting the omitted defenses or facts at the hearing.
Adopted by SR-NASD-2004-011 eff. April 16, 2007.
