PSH-13-0093 - In the Matter of Personnel Security Hearing

On November 8, 2013, a Hearing Officer determined that an individual’s security clearance should be restored. In reaching this determination, the Hearing Officer found that the individual had successfully addressed the DOE’s security concerns under Criteria H, J, and L. Specifically, the Hearing Officer concluded that the individual had demonstrated rehabilitation from Alcohol-Related Disorder NOS, and that he was no longer a user of alcohol habitually to excess in light of his six months of abstinence as recommended by the DOE consultant psychologist, followed by responsible, infrequent alcohol use.  The Hearing Officer also concluded that the individual had mitigated the DOE’s concerns regarding criminal activity, specifically, his failure to renew his handgun carry license.
