The Richard V. Backley Hearing Room, 9th Floor, 601 New Jersey Avenue, NW., Washington, DC.



Matters To Be Considered:

The Commission will consider and act upon the following in open session: Secretary of Labor v. Sedgman, Docket Nos. SE 2002-11, SE 2003-69, and SE 2003-189. (Issues include whether the Administrative Law Judge properly concluded that Sedgman violated 30 CFR 77.200; whether the judge properly held that the Secretary of Labor did not abuse her discretion in citing Sedgman for violations of 30 CFR 77.200 and 77.1710(g); whether the judge properly followed the statutory penalty criteria set forth at 30 U.S.C. 820(i) in setting a penalty for the section 77.200 violation; and whether the judge was correct in deciding to vacate the penalty he assessed for the section 77.200 violation because there was an unreasonable delay by the Secretary in proposing the penalty.)

The Commission heard oral argument on this matter on January 26, 2006.

Any person attending this meeting who requires special accessibility features and/or auxiliary aids, such as sign language interpreters, must inform the Commission in advance of those needs, subject to 29 CFR 2706.150(a)(3) and 2706.160(d).
