Another Clearance Saved

Bill Savarino saved another clearance at the Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals (DOHA) for an employee of a contractor working at the U.S. State Department.  The case involved Guideline E – Personal Conduct and was based on allegations that he lied on his SF-86 about his reason for having left his employer.  The individual believed he was laid off due to a downsizing at the State Department.  However, his former supervisor at the State Department, a vindictive man with an axe to grind, asserted to OPM investigators that the State Department had fired him for cause.  A 5 hour hearing took place in San Francisco during which Bill Savarino cross-examined the former State Department supervisor, forcing him to admit that his statements to OPM investigators about firing the individual for cause were not true.  Download the PDF
