No. 31374 - Rodney Sloan v. Department of Health and Human Resources
Starcher, J., concurring:
Given that situation, firing a long-term satisfactory low-level employee without a meaningful improvement period was overkill in this case. If Mr. Sloan had been a top administrator, I would have little problem with the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner's action. But despite his title as Chief Investigator, Mr. Sloan's actual salary was more like that of a good typist, and his duties were essentially ministerial.
This is why I joined the majority.
