The HDO also stated that, upon receipt of the ALJ’s recommended decision and remedy, the Commission would make the requisite legal determinations and decide upon appropriate remedies, if necessary. See id. The HDO failed to specify whether parties are entitled to file exceptions to the ALJ’s recommended decision.

As applied here, these rules allow parties to file exceptions to or briefs in support of the ALJ’s recommended decision within 30 days after public release of the full text of the recommended decision. See 47 CFR 1.276(a). These rules also provide that parties may file reply briefs within ten days after the time for filing exceptions has expired. See 47 CFR 1.277(c). 2. Accordingly, It is ordered, pursuant to Sections 4(i), 4(j), and 409(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. 154(i), 154(j), and 409(b), and Section 1.2 of the Commission’s rules, 47 CFR 1.2, that parties in the below-captioned matters may file exceptions to the ALJ’s recommended decision pursuant to the procedures set forth herein. 3.
