(Lab. Code, §§ 5900(a), 5902, 5903.) A “final” order has been defined as one “which determines any substantive right or liability of those involved in the case.” (Rymer v.

Workers’ Comp. Practice (4th ed Cal CEB 2000) §§ 21.8, 21.9. Pre-trial orders regsimilar issues are non-arding evidence, discovery, trial settling, venue, or similar issues are non-final interlocutory orders that do not determine any substantive right of the parties. Accordingly, the petition, to the extent it seeks reconsideration, must be dismissed. (e.g., Elwood v. Workers’ Comp. , Appeals Bd. (2001) 66 Cal.Comp.Cases 272 (writ den.); J
