Our client, a former correctional Sergeant with California Correctional Center, appealed his demotion from the position of Sergeant to correctional officer.  The appeal took place before an administrative law judge from the State Personnel Board on October 12th to the 14th and the appellant was represented by G&A attorney Dan Thompson.  In an unexpected move, at the conclusion of the hearing the Special Assistant Inspector General, Jeanne Wolfe, who was monitoring the case on behalf of the Bureau of Independent Review, congratulated attorney Thompson and told him that he had “done a good job”.  The parties will submit closing arguments on December 11th and we are optimistic about a positive ruling in our client’s favor in a few months.
