1107.06000 – De Novo Review; Standard of Review by Board
Although the Board reviews exceptions to a proposed decision de novo, where the proposed decision adequately addresses the issues raised by certain exceptions, the Board need not further analyze those exceptions. Nor does the Board need to address alleged errors that would not affect the result, particularly where the excepting party has simply reasserted claims without identifying a specific error of fact or law to justify reversal.
