Singleton v. Babbitt, No. 09-1117

In a petition for review of the FAA's revocation of petitioner's medical certificate and pilot's license after finding that he gave an intentionally false answer on his application for the certificate, the petition is granted where the National Transportation Safety Board: 1) wrongly suggested that petitioner's understanding of the form was irrelevant to the offense of intentional falsification; and 2) granted summary judgment to the FAA without giving petitioner a chance to present evidence bearing on that understanding.
