His rating for 12/31/2012 is 4.0A so does that mean he was bumped down to 4.0 and has appealed the bump down?
NO ... think it means he was computer rated at 4.5 and appealed down to 4.0. If his appeal was denied it would still say 4.0 C or 4.0 B.
From personal experience I know when an appeal is denied you do not get the A rating.
