Matthew S. Sweeting, Tacoma, for respondent Black.

Christine Gregoire, Atty. Gen., Jean Wilkinson, Asst. Atty. Gen., Olympia, for respondent Board of Industrial Insurance Appeals.

SANDERS, Justice.

The question in this case is whether service of notice of appeal on the assistant attorney general assigned to represent the Department of Labor and Industries substantially complies with RCW 51.52.110's requirement that the Department be served through its director. Under these facts, we conclude service substantially complied with RCW 51.52.110 and accordingly affirm the Court of Appeals and remand for a hearing on the merits.
