  • Weller v. GSA
    MSPB Docket 0752-12-0519-I-1 (2014)

    We won a trial before the MSPB on behalf of former GSA Region 7 Commissioner James Weller.

    MSPB ruled in favor of our client, James Weller, former Region 7 Commissioner of the General Services Administration, who lost his job following the Western Regions Las Vegas Conference scandal, cleared him of alleged wrongdoing, reinstated him to his former job and awarded 19 months' back pay, in a decision issued by MSPB administrative judge Ronald Weiss following a trial held last July.

    Finding that GSA had failed to prove any of its four contentions that Mr. Weller engaged in conduct unbecoming a federal employee in regards to the planning of the Western Regions Las Vegas conference, MSPB administrative law judge Ronald Weiss reversed GSA's decision to terminate Mr. Weller's employment and ordered that he be returned to work with19 months' back pay.
