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
