Hall-Villareal v. City of Fresno, F060144

In a petition for a writ of mandate ordering the respondent to conduct a hearing on the merits of a termination decision, judgment of the trial court granting petition is affirmed where: 1) the application for retirement benefits did not divest the Civil Service Board of jurisdiction to hear petitioner's appeal; and 2) due process requires that a good-cause exception for late-filed appeals be read into the administrative procedure, as a fundamental vested right to continued employment is at stake.
