On February 28, 2014, an Administrative Judge issued a Decision in which he determined that an individual’s access authorization should not be restored. In reaching this determination, the Administrative Judge found that the individual had not resolved security concerns under criteria (f) and (l) regarding his two citations for shoplifting and false or misleading statements that he made to the DOE regarding those incidents. The Administrative Judge rejected the individual’s claim that he accidently left a retail establishment in 2013 without paying for the items in his cart. He also concluded that the individual’s misrepresentations during a PSI cast into serious doubt his judgment, reliability and trustworthiness. Consequently, the Administrative Judge found that the individual’s clearance should not be restored.
