Dowd Scheffel Successfully opposes government's request for rehearing
The U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled favorably for the Firm's client SharLynn Foo. The district court again rejected the Federal Government's contention that Ms. Foo has to pay for the Department of State's mismanagement of funds. Mr. Dowd successfully opposed the government's request for rehearing on the issue of whether Foreign Service Grievance Board (with the Department of State) properly applied the legal standard when using on a request for a waiver of the repayment of an annuity overpayment. The decision rejecting the Government's request for rehearing is available here.
