Precedential Decisions of the Commissioner

Courts are generally expected to be even-handed, and the decisions that a court makes should generally be consistent over time. Therefore, earlier decisions of a court set "precedents" that the court may be expected to follow in future cases. State administrative agencies, including the California Department of Insurance, hold hearings and issue decisions that are somewhat analogous to civil court decisions. However, there are special rules for when administrative decisions can be relied on as precedents.
