Dallas, TX asked in Workers' Compensation for California

Q: Do I need to submit my proposed argument to the judge beforehand and turn into the court for wc status conference?

I am pro per. Not really what I want but that's what it is. If I plan on quoting labor codes and past legal decisions to back up my argument in a status conference regarding illegally denied medical care do I need to submit the details of the argument to the court first (and also process serve the IA and defense) so the judge has a heads up? Thank you.

A: For problems with medical treatment you should file for an Expedited hearing. It is faster. Make sure you have all the discovery as defendants probably have some Utilization Reviews denying your treatment, so make a discovery demand as well.
