9312. Review Proceeding Initiated By Adjudicatory Council

(a) Call for Review
(1) Rule 9268 Decision
A decision issued pursuant to Rule 9268 may be subject to a call for review by any member of the National Adjudicatory Council or, pursuant to authority delegated from the National Adjudicatory Council, by any member of the Review Subcommittee. A decision issued pursuant to Rule 9268 shall be subject to a call for review within 45 days after the date of service of the decision. If called for review, such decision shall be reviewed by the National Adjudicatory Council.
(2) Rule 9269 Decision
A default decision issued pursuant to Rule 9269 shall be subject to a call for review by the General Counsel, on his or her own motion within 25 days after the date of service of the decision. If called for review, such decision shall be reviewed by the Review Subcommittee or the National Adjudicatory Council.
(b) Effect
Institution of review by a member of the National Adjudicatory Council on his or her own motion, a member of the Review Subcommittee on his or her own motion, or the General Counsel, on his or her own motion, shall operate as a stay of a final decision issued pursuant to Rule 9268 or Rule 9269 as to all Parties subject to the notice of review, until the National Adjudicatory Council issues a decision pursuant to Rule 9349, or, in cases called for discretionary review by the FINRA Board, until a decision is issued pursuant to Rule 9351. Institution of any such review, however, will not stay a decision, or that part of a decision, that imposes a permanent cease and desist order.
(c) Requirements
(1) If a member of the National Adjudicatory Council, a member of the Review Subcommittee, or, for a disciplinary proceeding decided under Rule 9269, the General Counsel determines to call a case for review, a written notice of review shall be served promptly on each Party to the proceeding and filed with the Office of Hearing Officers. Such notice of review shall contain:
(A) the name of the disciplinary proceeding;
(B) the disciplinary proceeding docket number; and
(C) a brief statement of the findings, conclusions, or sanctions with respect to which the National Adjudicatory Council, the Review Subcommittee, or the General Counsel determined that a call for review was necessary.
(2) The statement contained in the notice of review shall not limit the scope of the National Adjudicatory Council's authority under Rule 9346 to review any issues raised in the record. The National Adjudicatory Council, the Review Subcommittee, a Subcommittee, the General Counsel or, if applicable, an Extended Proceeding Committee, shall provide the Parties with notice of, and an opportunity to submit briefs on, any issue that shall be considered by the National Adjudicatory Council if such issue was not previously set forth in the notice of review. Parties may submit motions to either the Review Subcommittee or the National Adjudicatory Council challenging requests for briefing made by the General Counsel under this Rule of issues that were not previously set forth in the notice of appeal.
(d) Effect of Withdrawal of Notice of Appeal, Cross-Appeal
If the review of a disciplinary proceeding by the National Adjudicatory Council is terminated before the National Adjudicatory Council issues a decision on the merits because all appealing Parties file a notice of withdrawal of appeal and no Party previously filed a notice of cross-appeal, or all Parties who previously filed a notice of cross-appeal file a notice of withdrawal of cross-appeal:
(1) a member of the National Adjudicatory Council or the Review Subcommittee shall have the right to call for review a decision issued pursuant to Rule 9268 in accordance with Rule 9312(a)(1), except that the 45 day period during which a call for review may be made shall begin on the day FINRA receives the last filed notice of withdrawal of appeal or, if applicable, the last filed notice of withdrawal of cross-appeal; and,
(2) the General Counsel shall have the right to call for review a decision issued pursuant to Rule 9269 in accordance with Rule 9312(a)(2), except that the 25-day period during which a call for review may be made shall begin on the day FINRA receives the last filed notice of withdrawal of appeal or, if applicable, the last filed notice of withdrawal of cross-appeal.
