Filings, Procedures, Orders and Decisions of EPA's Administrative Law Judges
TEMPORARY NOTICE REGARDING POSSIBLE AGENCY SHUTDOWN
Please be advised that if the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency shuts down due to an appropriations lapse, the Office of Administrative Law Judges will be closed. We will continue to abide by all hearing dates and deadlines as currently set in each case.
For cases in which any document is due during a shutdown, parties may, after the shutdown ends, file a motion for leave to file the document out of time. The presiding ALJ will consider such motions based on the reasons presented therein.
EPA's Administrative Law Judges (ALJs) conduct hearings and render decisions in proceedings between EPA and persons, businesses, government entities, and other organizations that are, or are alleged to be, regulated under environmental laws.
