CONSUMER PROTECTION — LEMON LAW 01-CMA-2813 Reilly v. Ford Motor Corp., OAL (Hayden, A.L.J.) (15 pp. — includes initial decision by the A.L.J. and final decision by Erdos, Dir.) Despite the respondent’s argument that the petitioner refused to avail himself of the last-chance repair offered by the dealership, the director agrees with the administrative law judge’s conclusion that the service manager did not offer a last-chance repair attempt due to the lemon law last-chance letter he had received; further, respondent failed to show, by objective evidence, that the excessive noise complained of in petitioner’s 2002 Ford Mustang GT did not substantially impair the use, safety or value of the vehicle. [Initial decision decided Jan. 10, 2003.] [Final decision dated Jan. 31, 2003.] PUBLIC EMPLOYEES — WORKING TEST PERIOD 01-CSV-2814 I/M/O Geis, OAL (LaFiandra, A.L.J.) (16 pp. — includes initial decision by the A.L.J. and final decision by Howard, Presiding Bd. Member) The administrative law judge found that the petitioner was released at the end of his working test period as a firefighter in good faith, based on the appointing authority’s legitimate concerns, in reliance on two psychological reports, that petitioner had neuropsychiatric problems that might affect his ability to function as a firefighter. Although the Merit System Board accepts and adopts the ALJ’s findings of fact, it does not adopt her position that the appointing authority’s action in releasing appellant was justified. Rather, the board finds that petitioner performed satisfactorily during the working test period, and, but for the two psychological evaluations, there would have been no basis to release him. The board orders that the petitioner be granted permanent status. [Initial decision decided Aug. 29, 2002.] [Final decision dated Nov. 20, 2002.]
