If leave to amend is granted, the judge may, upon motion of either party, stay the review panel proceedings, extend the time for completion of discovery, filing of submissions and other procedural limitation periods, or enter such orders as are appropriate to avoid prejudice to the parties and to avoid unnecessary delay and duplication in the proceedings. Leave to add additional parties shall not be granted if the judge finds that the applicable statute of limitations has expired with respect to the new or additional parties or causes of action. (c) Notification. -- At the time the panel is designated the Supreme Court shall advise the clerk of the circuit court in which the matter is filed of the names of the panel members. The Supreme Court shall also notify the parties of the name, address and professional practice of each panel member and shall also notify the panel members, in writing, of their appointment. (d) Completion of Discovery. -- Within ten days of receipt of the request for the panel the judge shall advise the parties of the date set for the completion of discovery.

8 transcripts, medical records, treatises and other documents which are relevant to the claim.

These materials shall be accompanied by a certificate stating that a copy of all such materials has been mailed to the health care provider and its counsel. All costs attendant to the submission of these materials shall be borne by the plaintiff. If the plaintiff fails to comply with this subsection, the judge shall prescribe a time within which the health care provider may submit evidence and shall order that the matter be considered solely upon the evidence. If the health care provider fails to comply with such order, the judge shall order the panel discharged. (f) Submission by Health Care Provider. -- Within ten days after receipt of the materials filed by the plaintiff, the health care provider shall submit to each panel member, including the judge, a counter statement of facts and all materials that it desires to introduce. The health care provider shall submit to the panel members only those portions of deposition transcripts, medical records, treatises and other documents which are relevant to the claim. However, upon request of the judge, the health care provider shall produce all or part of any such document submitted. These materials shall be accompanied by a certificate stating that a copy of all such materials has been mailed to the plaintiff and his counsel. All costs attendant to the submission of these materials shall be borne by the health care provider. (g) Extension of Time. -- The time periods stated in Rules Four (e) and Four (f) above may be extended by the judge for good cause shown. (h) Convening of Panel. -- The circuit judge presiding over the panel, within the period set for the taking of discovery and upon consultation with the panel members, shall notify all parties of the date, time and place for a hearing by the review panel, if any, or the date on which the panel will convene, having given due regard to the location of the other panel members and the parties involved and the time periods granted the parties to file their submissions. Such date shall not be set sooner than ten days after the date set for filing of the submission by the health care provider. (i) Oath. -- Upon convening of the panel, the judge shall swear in each panel member as follows: I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I have no past or present relationship with the parties nor am I aware of anything that would prevent me from being impartial in my deliberations. I further swear (or affirm) that I will render an opinion faithfully and fairly on the basis of the evidence presented, applying any professional expertise I may have, giving due regard to the nature of the claim and the nature of the practice of the health care provider.
9 MEDICAL MALPRACTICE RULES OF PRACTICE Rule 5. Request for Ore Tenus Hearing Either party may request the panel to conduct an ore tenus hearing and, when such a hearing is requested, it shall be held. Such a request shall be made in writing to the judge within ten days after the receipt of the designation of a panel.
