Have Military Law Questions? Ask a Military Lawyer.
No I did not, I was done by my Unit or higher echelone. I have not yet appealed, I still have some time.
Yes, It involved a personal realationship, in which my supervisor and his co-worker was involved. My supervior felt my relationship was part of his duty. Which resulted in harsh treatment toward me. After confronting both of them I rumor and allegation began to spread that I was involved in illegal activity.
I was moved to a different section within the same unit. I was also accused of committing Sexual assult, it got messy.
I later found out there was possible information passed to the local media.
I do have a question relating to the situation, can I request the results of the Commander's Inquiry through FOIA? I am unsure if the Command, is even aware of my rater's involvment, as the individuals involved were in a Command position and in favored that the inquiry came back substianted. I am unsure if I express, I was left for training, and come back into a situation.
Wow, thank you, XXXXX XXXXX as ever.
I actually have a question the Commanders Inquiry was in reference to sexual assault I am not sure if it was informal or formal reported. I do know that it came back unsubstantiated. As I knew it would. I would like to know if I can get the report. I request it, I was told that there was no report. This is not the case as I seen the Investigation Officer, and heard the report.
I did request a FOIA but I do not know what provisions allow me o have access to the report. I was informed that there was no report, I am 100 % certain that there was a report.
Yes, that is correct, I was told that there was no report. Not at the Company or the Battalion level. I even requested it higher but there was no report.
How do I proceed? Which type of attorney do I hire? Any recommendations. I am sure there was a informal or formal investigation conducted.
I would like to also say this particular investigation was either a restricted or unrestricted report under SHARP or SAPR. Can I obtain this report.
I've researched the following information:
As I once stated the report was a false report, as I would never physically harm another human being. The scorned female, and possibly her military boyfriend, made the claim behind my back. There was no evidence to support the claim.
I was told the document did not exist. I know the document existed because I was I heard from the Commander that is was unsubstantiated, as they were pushing for it behind my back. But as I said I was fortunate because I was able to fight it.
Good point, the event happened in 2010-2011. I believe it would have been used by law enforcement, but I only within the past year found out that I could request information via FOIA.
What is the usual fee for that service, I say this because. I suffer even today from that trama. I had to figure out what happened.
This is interesting because the cost and time invested would not be worth the gain. I already cleared my own name.
I'll take this recourse start with a filing. File the case in federal court (that would not cost much) and see what they do.
How do I go about doing this.
Do you have a ball park figure the that service?
Thank you very much.
