A term referring to decisions made by administrative tribunals or government officials to which the rules of natural justice apply. In judicial decisions, the principles of natural justice always apply, but between routine government policy decisions and the traditional court forums lies a hybrid, sometimes called a "tribunal" or "administrative tribunal" and not necessarily presided over by judges. This hybrid operates as a government policy-making body at times but also exercises a licensing, certifying approval or other adjudication authority which is "judicial" because it directly affects the legal rights of a person. Some law teachers suggest that there is no such thing as a "quasi-judicial" decision or body; the body or decision is either judicial or not.
a decision made by a government official or tribunal which involves the application of policy to a particular set of facts requiring the exercise of discretion and the application of the principles of natural justice.
The action, discretion, etc. of public administrative officers or bodies who are required to investigate facts, or ascertain the existence of facts, hold hearings, and draw conclusions from them, as a basis of their official action, and to exercise discretion of a judicial nature.
Similar to a court proceeding. "Quasi-judicial" refers to decisions made by administrative tribunals, which are not courts of law but to which the principles of natural justice apply.
A process within a state's judicial branch in which court officers other than Judges (such as Magistrates or clerks) process, establish, enforce and modify support orders, usually subject to a Judge's review. Depending on state law, he or she may or may not have to be an attorney.
decisions made by an official, commission or tribunal in adjudicating the law in cases where discretion must be exercised in applying the law to particular circumstances, often where two or more parties are in conflict over what should be done or who should receive a benefit under the law, such as a license to operate a business in a regulated industry.
an executive branch or administrative official's adjudicative functions. Quasi-judicial rulings are subject to review by judicial courts.
