          The Missouri Public Service Commission is issuing notice of a contested case. The applications[1] are subject to opposition, and their allegations suggest a property right subject to protection under the due process of law, which includes an opportunity for hearing in a meaningful manner and time.[2] A meaningful manner and time, for the applications, means an evidentiary hearing before the decision.[3] The necessity of a pre‑decision, evidentiary hearing makes this action a “contested case.”[4]




The Commission’s discovery regulations are at 4 CSR 240-2.090.[5] This notice requires no written answer from any party. Notice of hearing has issued already.[6]
