March 2009 Administrative Law Judge decisions
Over at the website for the Office of Administrative Courts they have posted decisions made by various judges in the month of March. Click here for 319 pages of decisions. What you can see from all these decisions is how complicated they can get. You also can see how medically involved they often are with combating medical opinions. The typical format involves findings of fact, followed by conclusions of law and the actual order itself. The names have been removed except for the judges themselves. It should be noted that these are decisions at what we call the local level. If there is an appeal it then can go to the Industrial Claim Appeals Office. Only a few of those cases make it to the appellate courts.
