Search past decisions
Look up decisions from previous appeals. This can help determine which laws or policies are relevant. For example, noteworthy or precedent decisions can show how a specific law or policy is applied in certain situations. See how to prepare your case.
You do not have to enter all of the fields below, but it’s a good idea to narrow your search by using some of the search fields and filters provided. Personal information about appeal parties is not included. You can also review a list of noteworthy decisions by subject (PDF, 2.0MB).
Enter a word, phrase, or appeal number (e.g. A1234567). You may use the following symbols to refine your search:
+ a plus sign between items includes all of those items in your search
| a pipe sign between items searches for one item or another
– a hyphen will search for results without the following item (please omit spaces in-between)
“” quotes around multiple items will search for an exact phrase
* an asterix at the end of an item will search for results that contain that item with a variety of endings
() brackets give priority to the items inside the brackets over other symbols in your search
For example, “mental disorder” | (permanent -John) + disab* searches for the exact phrase “mental disorder” or the word permanent but not John. It will also find words that start with “disab”.
