THE EVENING STAR Washington D C WEDNESDAY. MARCH *3, IMA 'Rifled' Judge Wins Plea That His Firing Was Violation of Ad Federal Judge Alexander Holtxoff yesterday held the State Department violated the Vet erans’ Preference Act in the dis missal of a judge serving on a United States Court in Germany. Judge Holtzoff granted a mo tion for summary judgment in favor of Meyer L. Casman, a Philadelphia attorney, who had held a $10,500-a-year post as a Judge with the Board of Review, then an agency of the Army Department in Germany. The board was created to han dle problems of restitution and property claims. In 1949, the functions of the board were transferred to a Court of Res titution Appeals operating under the State Department. Mr. Casman, a veteran of World War H, was dismissed in a reduction of force occasioned, the State Department said, by the liquidation of the review board. Mr. Casman appealed his dis missal to the Civil Service Com mission. The commission upheld him. but the State Department refused to abide by a CSC ruling that Mr. Casman be reinstated. But Judge Holtzoff ruled the act, applying to classified as well as unclassified Government em ployes, is also in effect concern ing State Department foreign service employes. Arguments will be held at a later date on the means of im plementing yesterday’s ruling and on the issue of back pay. Mr. Casman was represented by At torney Philip W. Amram.
