Administrative Law Judge Decisions

Any operation adversely affected by an AMS Administrator’s Decision may appeal that decision to a USDA Administrative Law Judge (ALJ).  The ALJ will commence an administrative proceeding that will result in a decision on the operation’s appeal.  The ALJ also may agree to a settlement between the USDA and the operation (a Consent Decision).
