Case SUMMARY

DC OEA reinstated appeal

A Correctional Officer with almost 23-years of service with the DC Department of Corrections contacted us after he was removed from his employment. We filed his appeal with OEA, but due to the Agency’s failure to follow procedural requirements and inform our client of his rights, the appeal was filed 8 months after the deadline.  We submitted a brief identifying DC’s failures and convinced the judge that it denied our client his due process rights which 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.
