The Administrative Law Judges of the United States Department of Agriculture’s Office of Administrative Law Judges (USDA OALJ) conduct rulemaking and adjudicatory hearings throughout the country in proceedings that are subject to the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. § 551, et seq. Approximately 50 statutes administered by USDA agencies require APA hearings. Judges issue initial decisions and orders in adjudicatory proceedings, which become final decisions of the Secretary unless appealed to the Secretary’s Judicial Officer by a party. Decisions are issued after a hearing, upon the written record, or on motion by litigants. Judges approve consent decisions that the parties enter into, which resolve disputes by settlement. They also decide appeals of debarments and suspensions as required by regulations implementing a government-wide system for non-procurement debarments and suspensions (7 C.F.R. § 3017.100-.515 (1993)).

The following decisions were rendered after January 1st, 2015, by the United States Department of Agriculture’s Office of Administrative Law Judges (“USDA-OALJ”). Decisions made before January 1, 2015 are available on the USDA-OALJ website, here.  The cases reported on these websites are to be considered “primary sources” and are included for your research convenience.  Legal citations to these cases may be made from this website or from the official printed volume of Agriculture Decisions.

OALJ also publishes “Agriculture Decisions”, the official compilation of quasi-judicial and judicial decisions issued concerning regulatory laws administered by the Department.  Recent versions of this publication, beginning in January of 2015, are available here.  Older versions of this publication are available on the USDA-OALJ website, here.
