PSH-13-0050 - In the Matter of Personnel Security Hearing

On August 9, 2013, an OHA Hearing Officer issued a decision in which he determined that the DOE should restore an individual’s access authorization.  As security concerns under Criterion F of 10 CFR Part 710, a Local Security Office (LSO) cited the individual’s inconsistent statements regarding his use of marijuana over 30 years ago.  After considering all the evidence, the Hearing Officer found that the inconsistent statements did not concern deliberate misrepresentations of significant information.
