GALLEN FLOYD v. PERSONNEL BOARD OF ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY

Administrative law — Termination of employment — Substantial evidence

Gallen Floyd, the appellant, challenges a decision of the Personnel Board of Anne Arundel County (“the Board”), the appellee, to terminate him from employment with the Anne Arundel County (“the County”) Department of Public Works (“DPW”). Floyd was discharged for conduct unbecoming of his classification or position based on a finding that he had stolen scrap metal belonging to the County. On judicial review, the Circuit Court for Anne Arundel County affirmed the Board’s final decision.

Floyd presents one question for review, which we have rephrased:

Was the Board’s decision to terminate him supported by substantial evidence in the record and legally correct?
