Dillmon v. Nat'l. Transp. Safety Bd., No. 08-1390

By FindLaw Staff on December 09, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a petition for review of the National Transportation Safety Board's (Board) order upholding the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) emergency revocation of petitioner's airman and medical certificates, the petition is granted where: 1) the Board departed from its precedent when it reversed the ALJ's decision without addressing the ALJ's credibility determination in petitioner's favor; and 2) the Board diverged from its precedent by refusing, without adequate explanation, to accept petitioner's testimony that he subjectively thought a questionnaire did not require him to report his felony bribery conviction.
