Judicial review of administrative agency action, with emphasis upon the limited nature of such review, has again been of major importance in Tennessee Administrative Law during the survey period, This is shown to be true not only in the number of decisions but also in the frequent utilization (and apparent broadening) of the doctrine of Hoover Motor Express Co. v. Railroad & Public Utilities Commission in according finality to administrative action. In addition to holdings on various aspects of judicial review, the Tennessee appellate courts contributed important decisions during the survey period dealing with delegation of legislative power and the application of the doctrine of res judicata to administrative action.
