In any case in which only the named person objects to the findings or the preliminary order the
Assistant Secretary ordinarily shall be the prosecuting party. In such a case the complainant shall also be a party and may engage in discovery,
present evidence or otherwise act as a party. The named person shall be the party-respondent. If, at any time after the named person files objections,
the Assistant Secretary and complainant agree, the complainant may present the case to the judge. Under such circumstances the case will be handled as
if it had arisen under paragraph (b) of this section.
In any case in which only the complainant objects to findings that the complaint lacks merit, to the
preliminary order, or to both, the complainant shall be the prosecuting party. The Assistant Secretary may as of right intervene as a party at any
time in proceedings under this paragraph. The named person shall be the party-respondent.
In any case in which both the complainant and the named person object to the preliminary order the
Assistant Secretary shall be the prosecuting party. The complainant and the named person shall be the party-respondents. In any such case, if the
named person also objected to the findings the Assistant Secretary, complainant, and named party shall each have the party status, rights, and
responsibilities set forth in paragraph (a) of this section with respect to the findings.
