E. Communicating with
Commissioners on Cases
Pending Litigation Authorization

If a field office unit legal unit receives an inquiry from a Commissioner’s office concerning a case that has been submitted to the Office of General Counsel in headquarters for litigation authorization, but has not yet been authorized, the legal unit should consult with Litigation Advisory Services (LAS) staff before responding unless this is impracticable under the circumstances. The legal unit should inform LAS staff of the substance of any conversation with a Commissioner’s office immediately following such conversation.
