Recusal Rules for Administrative Adjudicators

This project addresses whether agencies should issue procedural regulations—as distinct from the ethics laws and regulations generally applicable to all federal employees—governing the recusal of adjudicators, to what sources of law agencies should look in formulating such regulations, how such regulations should be promulgated and enforced, and related questions. The project expands upon ACUS Recommendation 2016-4, Evidentiary Hearings Not Required by the Administrative Procedure Act, and revisits parts of the recommendation proposed by the Committee on Adjudication entitled Administrative Judges. Unlike these earlier projects, this project covers both administrative law judges (ALJs) and non-ALJ adjudicators alike.
