WA Court of Appeals at Div II: "Good Cause" = "Good Reason" and neither was present here.
Puget sound medical supply was dinged for medicaid overpayments. They were ordered to pay it back. They wanted to appeal it, but were a day late. If they could show their failure was with good reason, they get back into it. Good reason doesn't appear much, but the court of appeals ruled that it was essentially good cause. PSM blamed the failure on the short time (but that's in the rules, so that's not good cause), office staff being out for the holidays, lead counsel leaving the firm, etc. etc. The problem is, courts have held that breakdown in office procedure doesn't count as good cause, and that is all that happened here. No dice PSM.
