The administrative litigation process begins when the Commission sets a proceeding for hearing before an administrative law judge (ALJ). The Chief Administrative Law Judge assigns a presiding judge and sets a hearing schedule.

FERC trial staff participates in the administrative litigation process pursuant to 18 CFR 385.102(b) as an impartial representative of the public interest. Trial staff includes attorneys as well as technical staff that serve as expert witnesses whose goal is to settle or litigate cases in a timely, efficient and equitable manner while ensuring the outcomes are consistent with Commission policy.
