Paul Loomis v. Michael Chertoff, Secretary, Dept. of Homeland Security, EEOC No. 340-2005-00070X (issued 09/27/06) – Transportation Security Administration’s termination of baggage screener’s federal employment for allegedly failing to properly screen golf bags at an airport is reversed by EEOC Administrative Judge, who orders TSA to reinstate the employee with all back pay, benefits, $45,000.00 in non-pecuniary compensatory damages, additional pecuniary damages, and attorney fees. The Judge found that TSA’s termination of this employee was in retaliation for his having filed a discrimination case over being denied promotions he had applied for.
