 Quasi-Judicial

Quasi-judicial is defined as having a partly judicial character by possession of the right to hold hearings on and conduct an investigation into disputed claims and alleged infractions of rules and regulations and to make decisions in the general manner of the courts. It means that it is essentially judicial but not within the judicial power or function especially as constitutionally defined.
