ARTZ; CIGA by its servicing facility, BROADSPIRE CLAIMS SERVICES for CALIFORNIA COMP. INSURANCE, in liquidation; SEABRIGHT INSURANCE COMPANY, Defendants.Case Nos. ADJ2725399 (VNO 0431180) ADJ832058 (VNO 0431183)OPINION AND ORDER DISMISSING RECONSIDERATION            We have considered the allegations of the petition for reconsideration and the contents of the workers’ compensation administrative law judge’s (WCJ’s) Report and Recommendation. However, based on our review of the record, it appears the petition is untimely and must be dismissed.            Labor Code section 5903 allows twenty (20) days after service of a final order, decision, or award to file a petition for reconsideration, and the time for filing may be extended five (5) days for mailing (Code of Civ.
