Cordatis successfully defends challenge to security clearance based on allegations of financial distress and foreign influence

Bill Savarino and Rhina Cardenal saved another clearance (and likely a career) with a victory at the Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals (DOHA) in a complicated case involving the impact of financial difficulties on security clearances. The government’s unsuccessful attempt to revoke our client’s clearance involved allegations pertaining to Financial Conditions under Guideline F where the individual amassed considerable debt after he lost a job that led to bankruptcy and a mortgage default. It also involved allegations of Foreign Influence under Guideline B tied to Bangladesh.
