Administrative Law Judge Orders and Initial Decisions

June 4, 2024

The Commission has administrative law judges (ALJs) who preside over formal hearings, create administrative records, make factual findings, draw legal conclusions, and determine liability and sanctions in the course of adjudicating disputes involving the primary conduct of private individuals.

ALJ Orders

ALJs presiding over contested administrative proceedings may issue orders to schedule hearings, rule on motions, or otherwise communicate to parties involved.

ALJ Initial Decisions

ALJs issue initial decisions interpreting and applying the law that, if not further reviewed, are “deemed the action of the Commission.”
