What We Do
FERC Administrative Law Judges (ALJs) resolve contested cases as directed by the Commission, either by serving as a Presiding Judge, conducting a hearing, developing a record, rendering an initial decision, or by serving as a Settlement Judge and facilitating a negotiated resolution by settlement.
ALJs perform various other Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) procedures as directed by the Commission, including mediation, arbitration, and facilitation.
Some matters before the Commission are set for hearing before Administrative Law Judges (ALJs). The ALJ will issue an Initial Decision and the Commission will issue a final order for the proceeding. Appeals of Commission orders and regulations are heard in Federal Courts. FERC also facilitates settlements as an alternative to litigation.
