The judges favorable decision resulted in the cancelation of penalties totaling $19,650.00.
The entire decision can be found under the NEWS heading of the FORUM.
In terms of penalties to be lifted, what dollar impact did the decision have?
As I walked in the office today, Ian and Rae were reviewing the job applications on file. I joined them. Twenty minutes later Rae said, “Oh, the Ninth Appeals Court decision arrived. We won.” Well, the job applications were set aside because this bit of news is really NEWS. WE WON!
The decision is five pages, which we hope to scan or get to our web site. It concludes, “We therefore grant the petition …and vacate the penalties imposed in connection therewith. In view of our holding and the factors cited…the imposition of further penalties for the conduct described in Citations Nos. 7995404 and 7995405 would be arbitrary and capricious. Accordingly, no further penalties shall be imposed with respect to those two alleged violations.”
