From Courthouse News Service, here:
A former West Point cadet booted . . . after testing positive for cocaine cannot upgrade his discharge status and still owes more than $143,000 in education costs, a federal judge ruled. . . . [Troy] Wilson, a stand-out cadet who tested positive for cocaine in 2007, opted to resign from West Point after being threatened with court-martial. Later, the Army Board for Correction of Military Records (ABCMR) denied his appeal to be commissioned as an officer, receive back pay and have his discharge upgraded from “other than honorable.” . . .
“The court finds that because he voluntarily resigned instead of contesting the charge leveled against him in a court-martial, Wilson cannot challenge the underlying evidence in this forum,” U.S. District Judge James Boasberg wrote.
For those that do Correction Board work this is an all too familiar result. The District Court’s decision is available here.
