TiNY Report for December 27, 2018 (covering DTA cases issued December 20)

We assumed we were on the “naughty” list, and that seems to have been confirmed:  Santa brought us just one ALJ determination and one Tribunal decision this week, and they were both unremarkable timeliness cases.  Ho, Ho, Ho-Hum.

This week we had 4 ALJ Determinations and 4 ALJ Orders.  One of the Orders is worthy reading.  Not even coal in the stocking from the Tribunal.  Happy Holidays to all of our readers.

Just one Order from the Tribunal this week on which to write.  So we are embellishing this week’s TiNY Report with a joke and a pop-culture quiz.

Sometimes I wonder…Why is it that, sometimes, the DTA does not post decisions/determinations on its website until after TiNY comes out?  Feel free to post an answer to this question in the box below for “comments”.  If we get some funny answers, I’ll share them next week.

This Fall the pattern with the DTA has been feast or famine, and this week we’re back to famine: no decisions, determinations or orders.  This ought to surprise no one since the DTA’s output is generally released on Thursdays and last Thursday was Thanksgiving.  So, as we often do when stuck with nothing on which to write, I’m reposting our Disclaimer, since it is good reminder that the TiNY Report has its limitations, they are intentional, and you should consider these limitations when relying on the TiNY Report for anything other than general information and entertainment.  Enjoy!

Last Wednesday the DTA posted two ALJ Determinations and one ALJ Order this week.  Happy Thanksgiving to us!

After two weeks of subsistence dieting, this week we are back on our feed with two ALJ Determinations and one Tribunal decision.   

Belated TiNY Report covering DTA cases issued November 1, 2018

Was it something we said?

So, at about 11:00 last Friday we posted our Report grumbling about the dearth of DTA output over the last few weeks.  Then I went away for a long weekend and 7 ALJ Determinations magically appeared on the DTA’s website while I was away.  Ergo, it has taken a few days to get this report out to you.  Apologies.

What the heck is going on? Last week there was one late-released Tribunal Decision from two weeks ago (on which we have already reported), and then this week there is nothing.
