The Judicial Officer Department is a neutral, independent forum within the United States Postal Service comprised of the Judicial Officer, the Office of Administrative Law Judges, and the Postal Service Board of Contract Appeals.
The Judicial Officer Electronic Filing system is where you can file a new case, ask to be added to an existing case, or work with cases in which you are already a party or representative.
