Slattery v. Dep't of Justice, No. 09-3095

By FindLaw Staff on January 06, 2010 1:22 PM

A decision of the Merit Systems Protection Board holding that the INS's non-selection of petitioner for any of the law enforcement position for which she applied is not a violation of a Negotiated Settlement and Last Chance Agreement (NSLCA) is affirmed as the NSLCA does not require the agency to ignore petitioner's history of her arrest for obtaining money under false pretenses, and "good faith" does not require pretending that this history does not exist.
