Gerald Walpin wants his old job back — right now.
The former inspector general of the Corporation for National and Community Service, who was fired by the White House, filed a lawsuit in June alleging the firing was unlawful and politically motivated.
Now Walpin has filed a request for an injunction from the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, asking to be reinstated, Fox News reports.
Fox News notes the government recently asked for another five weeks to respond to Walpin’s complaint.
A Congressional review found that Walpin’s firing was “legitimate” and documents relevant to the case seem to back up stated reasons for his firing: a loss of confidence in Walpin by the Corporation for National and Community Service.
