            The above-captioned matter was scheduled to be heard as a contested case on March 13, 2001 at 2:00 P.M., at which time the respondents appeared, but the complainant did not.   

 

            The following order by the Commission is hereby recommended on the basis of the record concerning the above-captioned complaint:

 

1.  The complaint is hereby dismissed with prejudice.

 

            2.   The Commission admonishes the complainant for his failure to appear at the hearing in this matter, which failure resulted in a waste of scarce state and municipal resources.  

 

3.  In the event the complainant files future complaints against the respondents, the executive director may review such complaints, pursuant to 1-206(b)(2), G.S., which provides that the executive director of the commission shall not schedule an appeal for hearing without first seeking and obtaining leave of the commission, if the director has reason to believe an appeal would constitute an abuse of the commission's administrative process.
