Affirmed.
As a general rule, parties aggrieved by action of administrative agency cannot seek review in courts without first exhausting all administrative remedies available to them. Allowing Department of Insurance to reconsider evidentiary issues allows Department to use its expertise and correct its own errors. Plaintiff must exhaust all administrative remedies, including filing for a rehearing, before seeking judicial review of evidentiary issues raised. (CONNORS and DELORT, concurring.)
