Finding DOL ALJ decisions

I spent half an hour looking for cases cited as 2009 FRS xx this week.  Bieber’s said “FRS” was the Federal Rules Service, but the cases turned out to be U.S. Department of Labor Administrative Law Judge decisions.   “FRS” stands for the “Federal Rail Safety Act” because the DOL cites its ALJ decisions based on the underlying Act, rather than calling them something obvious like DOL ALJ.   There are currently 75 of these three-letter abbreviations.  I added them all to the United States Department of Labor entry so that, if I someday search for a CER (CERCLA) or an SOX (Sarbanes-Oxley Act), I will know what I am looking for and where to find it.
