DDS publishes the subject and decision for all Section 4731 Complaints filed every year. If you ask for this information, DDS must give it to you.[1]§ 4731(a).

For every appeal filed under Section 4700, DDS can tell you:[2]§ 4731(d).

  • If the case was resolved through an informal meeting or mediation.
  • If the consumer or regional center refused to have an informal meeting.
  • The issue(s) involved in the case.
  • The outcome of the case, if there was a fair hearing.

You can also read entire hearing decisions on the Office of Administrative Hearings website, which is: https://www.dgs.ca.gov/OAH/Case-Types/General-Jurisdiction/Resources/DDS-Decisions.
