before the Commission, or filed a timely pleading
seeking to participate as a party and was entitled as
matter of right to participate as a party;
(b) The person filed a timely motion for reconsideration or
rehearing which was denied by the Commission or by
operation of law, unless the Commission expressly waived
the filing of such a motion; and
(c) The action of which judicial review is sought is, in all
respects, a final order of the Commission.
(3) Deadline for Filing Petitions for Judicial Review.
A petition for judicial review must be filed within
35 days after the order of the Commission becomes final.

exclusive of all other remedies at law or equity in regard to
review of Commission actions, regulations or orders.
