On February 18, 2014, an OHA Administrative Judge issued a decision in which he determined that an individual’s DOE access authorization should not be granted. The individual had a history of violent incidents and dishonesty. A DOE Psychiatrist subsequently diagnosed the individual with a history of involvement in violent incidents, and a pattern of dishonesty. At the hearing, the individual unsuccessfully attempted to show that he did not intentionally mislead the DOE, and that he was not at fault in any of the violent incidents. However, the record showed that the individual had repeatedly failed to report derogatory information about himself to DOE security officials and had excersied questionable judgment in most of the violent incidents in the record. Accordingly, the Administrative Judge found that the Individual has not mitigated the security concerns raised by his actions and the DOE Psychiatrist’s findings.
