Another Security Clearance Victory

Bill Savarino and his team won another key clearance decision. This time they successfully overturned an initial adverse decision by the NSA to deny an applicant access to Sensitive Compartment Information (SCI) based on long-term excessive alcohol use. The final level of appeal comprised a written brief attacking the findings of an NSA psychologist and an oral argument before a seven member panel at NSA in Ft. Meade, Maryland.
