On an issue of first impression, held that a California state employee who was awarded back pay by the California State Personnel Board was not entitled to be compensated for incurring increased tax liability as a result of the lump sum nature of the award. There was no statutory authorization to increase damages to adjust for tax impacts. Affirmed the denial of writ relief.
