National Adjudication Team Begins On-The-Record Decisions
After making zero attorney advisor decisions during Fiscal Year 2018, the National Adjudication Team began its work in November 2018 for Fiscal Year 2019. These Attorney Advisors are empowered to issue fully-favorable decisions on the record in cases where a hearing is not necessary. Through February 2019, the most recent month available at this writing, 454 decisions had been issued nationwide with an average of 4.73 dispositions per day. While this sounds like a large number, this is less than 0.01% of the total cases pending through that point in FY 2019. However, this is still more efficient than Administrative Law Judges who averaged 2.22 dispositions per day in the same time (including dismissals and denials).
