FOJE stands for "Findings, Order and Journal Entry." A FOJE is entered as the final resolution of a case (comparable to a Board Order) when someone has been notified of allegations against them but does not request a hearing within the 30 days alloted by statute. After that 30 day period has passed, the Board is permitted to treat the uncontested allegations as though they have been proven, and may impose an action based on those "findings of fact."
