In A.C. Widenhouse, Inc. v. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, No. 1:11-cv-00498-TDS-JEP (4th Cir. June 24, 2014).
A Correctional Officer with almost 23-years of service with the DC Department of Corrections contacted us after he was removed from his employment, filed his appeal with OEA 8-months after the deadline, and the Judge issued a Show Cause Order directing him to file a Brief in Support of Jurisdiction due to his untimely filing. We submitted a brief identifying that DC had failed to follow all of the procedural requirements in violation of the applicable statutes which denied our client due process and resulted in harmful error and his untimely filing of his appeal. The Judge ruled in our favor and reinstated our client's appeal to be assigned a judge where his removal can be determined on the merits of his case.
