Final Opinions and Orders

Note: Final opinions, including concurring and dissenting opinions, that may be cited, used, or relied upon as precedents in future adjudications are available under this section. Although Electronic FOIA and the DOJ proposed rule only require components to make available post-November 1996 decisions, BIA and OCAHO decisions issued prior to said date are also provided. Non published decisions are not part of the Agency's final orders and therefore are not provided through this electronic link.
