accommodation cases finding  discrimination, no discrimination,
no probable cause, and decisions which are administratively 
closed by the department(i.e., dismissal for failure to appear
at hearing, failure to respond to department correspondence, 
dismissal for lack  of jurisdiction, etc.) Fair Housing cases 
in which discrimination is alleged to  have occurred after 
9/92 and Family & Medical Leave decisions are not appealable 
to the Commission.
