Notes of Decisions


   The administrative docket clerk’s act of mailing the proposed decision to the address listed on counsel’s praecipe for appearance was proper even though counsel had moved his office and even though he had sent letters to the Department of Transportation and to the Department’s counsel with the new address at the top of the page and he had received letters from the Department’s counsel at the new address, where the record showed that counsel never sent a letter to the administrative docket clerk specifically informing her that he had relocated to the new address and directing the clerk to send all future correspondence to that address.
