You are here

On April 10, 2019, an Administrative Judge issued a decision in which she determined that an Individual should not be granted access authorization. In a Notification Letter issued to the Individual, the DOE alleged the existence of derogatory information under Adjudicative Guideline G regarding the Individual's habitual, excessive alcohol consumption. After conducting a hearing, the Administrative Judge determined that the Individual had not established a pattern of abstinence. The Administrative Judge relied upon that finding to conclude that the Individual had not mitigated the concerns related to his alcohol consumption. Accordingly, the Administrative Judge found that the Individual should not be granted access authorization. OHA Case No. PSH-19-0004 (Kimberly Jenkins-Chapman).
