The Minutes of Hearing usually incorporates a list of the evidential exhibits. A Trial Brief is not evidence, so it is not usually required in the Minutes. In fact, many times a Trial Brief is submitted after the Trial in a separate filing. Nevertheless, filing an Objection to the Minutes of Hearing cannot hurt your case. If anything, it will bring the judge's attention to the existence of the Trial Brief in the event that he/she overlooked it. I would recommend that you ask your attorney about the procedure to make such a filing; otherwise, if you're representing yourself in pro per, then I would recommend that you discuss this issue with the Information & Assistance Officer at your local Workers' Compensation Appeals Board.

The minutes of hearing is a summary of the stipulations, issues, and evidence introduced at trial. Trial briefs are not evidence and would therefore not be listed in the minutes of hearing. If you have a stamped conformed copy, that means the judge has it. Any comment on your trial brief will be made in the findings and award that will subsequently be issued by the trial judge.
trial briefs are not evidence they are used as guidelines by the judges - you will not see it listed - no amendment is necessary - the judge will most likely read it - but remember it is a Brief and is suppose to be brief - the longer it is the less likely the judge will read it
