Anyone seeking to rely on the appearance of fairness doctrine to disqualify a member
of a decision-making body from participating in a decision must raise the challenge
as soon as the basis for disqualification is made known to the individual. Where the basis is known or should reasonably have been known prior to the issuance
of a decision and is not raised, it may not be relied on to invalidate the decision.
