The Judge will take all the written information submitted by the parties and the testimony offered by the parties and their witnesses into consideration while making a Decision in the case.
The Judge will write a Decision either agreeing with the denial/modification of services, reversing the denial/modification of services, or changing the denial/modification of services.
This Decision will be made within twenty (20) days of the closing of the record. The closing of the record will depend on whether the parties want to order a copy of the transcript and/or whether they will be submitting proposed decisions or other documentation. If the parties will be ordering a transcript or submitting additional filings, the Administrative Law Judge will set a time as to when additional filings are due, when the record will be closed, and when the Decision will be issued. This is a Final Decision issued under the authority of N.C. Gen. Stat. § 150B-34.
Parties who are not registered e-filers will receive the Final Decision by US mail.
