1107.01000 – Exceptions; Responses to Exceptions; Standing; Extensions of Time/Late Filing/Waiver
Initial exceptions filed by prevailing party dismissed where good cause for the Board to consider the exceptions not shown. Board declines to adopt ALJ’s findings as a decision of the Board itself; the proposed decision remains nonprecedential and binding on the parties only with respect to the specific controversy involved in the case. This holding prevents prevailing parties from unilaterally turning a favorable ALJ decision into a precedential decision of the Board.
