Another DOHA Clearance Victory

Bill Savarino saved another clearance before the Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals (DOHA). The applicant was denied a clearance under Guideline E Personal Conduct based on allegations that he had (i) recently smoked marijuana, (ii) demonstrated a pattern of accessing questionable material on a Government computer system; and (iii) stole considerable property from his employer and the employers of his friends. Mr. Savarino was able to overturn the denial following a 4-hour hearing in Arlington, VA.
