The food-stamp recipient in this case asked the Court to reduce the repayment amount she had previously agreed to in a “Waiver of Disqualification Hearing” agreement.  The Judge dismissed this case for lack of jurisdiction, concluding that a head of household who is accused of intentionally violating the food-stamp program has no right to an administrative hearing once she signs an agreement waiving her right to such a hearing.
