PSH-12-0106 - In the Matter of Personnel Security Hearing

On December 13, 2012, a Hearing Officer determined that an individual’s security clearance should not be restored. In reaching this determination, the Hearing Officer found that the individual had not successfully addressed the DOE’s security concerns regarding his history of   legal problems, including arrests, warrants issued for his arrest, and protective orders issued against him. Although the Hearing Officer concluded that the fact that many of these issues arose during the course of an acrimonious divorce, and the fact that the individual had entered into counseling were mitigating factors, these factors were outweighed by the severity of the individual’s most recent assaultive behavior, and by the long-standing nature of the individual’s anger management problems.
