Notes about Decisions

This site contains the Board's decisions. New decisions are typically added to this website on Friday.  Indexing, a process which makes a decision available to the search engine, is performed daily.  Despite this frequency, it is possible that the search engine will fail to identify a decision even though it has been posted.  If you are seeking a decision that was decided recently and it is not listed in your search results, please double-check the most recent list of decisions that corresponds to the decision category of the decision your are seeking. 

Decisions and other documents on the following pages are available in three formats: WordPerfect, Text, and Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format.

The text and pdf files may be searched,  displayed, printed, and downloaded.  When viewing decisions in the text format, please use the "back" key on your browser to return to the list of decisions.

Footnotes in Decisions

Documents in WordPerfect and Adobe Acrobat's .pdf formats include all footnotes.  Documents in text format which are dated before November 15, 1997, do not include footnotes.  If you wish to view the footnotes in those documents, please refer to the same documents in WordPerfect.  Documents in text format which are dated on or after November 15, 1997, include footnotes.  Footnotes in these documents are identified as [Foot #].  Footnote text will appear at clearly delineated places within the documents.
