Comments/Notes on Appellate Process & Procedures (Optional):
Any party may petition for rehearing, reargument, reconsideration of an appellate decision. The petition shall state
briefly and specifically the matters of record alleged to have been erroneously decided, and the ground or grounds relied upon. If the petition is based, in whole or in part, upon new matter, it shall set forth such new matter and shall contain affidavits of prospective witnesses, authenticated documents, or both, or an explanation of why such substantiation is unavailable, and shall explain why such new matter could not have been discovered in the exercise of due diligence prior to the date on which the evidentiary record closed.
On appeal, a party may request oral argument before the Board. Pursuant to 49 C.F.R. 821.48(e), the Board considers, and votes on, whether to hold an oral argument.
The Board has the authority to issue final decisions disposing of appeals. Title 49 U.S.C. 1133 provides the Board with this authority.
