Wooley v. State Farm - this case attacks the constitutionality of the LA administrative code provisions that prevent state agencies from seeking judicial review of ALJ decisions made by the cental administative judge panel. The case arises from a dispute over the construction of an insurance policy, which, ironically, probably should not have been decided by an ALJ at all.
New! LA Supreme Court Opinion - upholds the law preventing the agencies from overruling or appealing the decisions of the ALJ panel.
