Precedential Decisions

    Under the Administrative Procedure Act (“APA”), a decision containing a significant legal or policy determination of general application that is likely to recur may be designated as precedential. (See Government Code section 11425.60). Once a decision is designated as precedential, the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (hereinafter “Department”) may rely on the decision, and parties may cite to such decision in their argument to the Department, Appeals Board and courts.
