What Does "Reserved Decision" Mean in NY Workers' Comp?

Reserved Decision means that the Judge has not yet made up his mind, but will write his ruling after having time to review all the evidence.  Usually, from practice, it means he will find against the Claimant and does not want to say so in front of the Claimant at a hearing.  BUT sometimes it has nothing to do with that and all to do with still needing more time to review the entire record.  The judge then files a written decision.
