[Resp’t Exh. 1]. Again, the Government has proved by a preponderance of the evidence that the Respondent violated DEA regulations. Thus, the burden of production now shifts to the Respondent to demonstrate that it takes full responsibility for its unlawful conduct and that it has put in place remedial measures so that such violations will not happen in the future. Medicine Shoppe, 73 Fed. Reg. at 387 (quoting Samuel S. Jackson, 72 FR 23,848, 23,853 (DEA 2007)) (holding that a registrant must ‘‘present sufficient mitigating evidence to assure the Administrator that [it] can be entrusted with the responsibility carried by such a registration’’); Leo R. Miller, 53 Fed. Reg. 21,931, 21,932 (DEA 1988). On direct examination, Mr. Lekwa took full responsibility for any misconduct attributable to the Respondent. However, on cross examination, Mr. Lekwa presented testimony inconsistent with other testimony in the record. First, he denied that A.G., at the time of his employment interview, told him about his felony conviction for distribution of crack cocaine. A.G. testified to the contrary. Further, DI Ramirez testified that, in July of 2013, she had told Mr. Lekwa about A.G.’s felony conviction, yet Mr. Lekwa denied having this conversation with DI Ramirez. Rather, Mr. Lekwa testified that he had a conversation in September 2013 with DI Ramirez’s supervisor. That was when he first learned of the felony conviction, he asserted. Next, Mr. Lekwa seemed to deny that there was any misconduct when the prescription containing both controlled substance and non-controlled substance entries, as well as a notation of ‘‘all or none,’’ was filled by only distributing the controlled substance. Rather, Mr. Lekwa testified that he had contacted the doctor and received permission to fill the prescription in that manner. Yet the record contains no evidence of this verification action. This inconsistent testimony certainly calls into question Mr. Lekwa’s genuine remorse for the misconduct proved by the Government. As for remedial measures, the record contains unrefuted evidence that Mr. Lekwa fired A.G. in September of 2013. Also, Mr. Lekwa testified that he now trains each employee on the procedures to follow in filling a controlled substance prescription. He announced that there was a training manual to help with this training. However, on cross examination Mr. Lekwa stated that the manual was the one the franchise company provided. Although he kept the manual current, there is no evidence that he altered procedures to come into compliance with legal requirements. Rather, Mr. Lekwa testified that the manual was not deficient, but the implementation of the manual provisions was lacking prior to the Order to Show Cause being served. Arguably, this new training would be a meaningful remedial measure. But the record contains no excerpts from the manual to bolster the adequacy of this training. Next, Mr. Lekwa testified that when he receives a prescription containing a ‘‘drug cocktail,’’ he now requires the physician to VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:04 Oct 01, 2014 Jkt 235001 fax to him confirmation of the diagnosis that resulted in this kind of prescribing. Unfortunately, the record contains no evidence that this procedure has been successfully implemented. V. CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATION Given the extent of the misconduct and the unreliability of the testimony concerning the acceptance of responsibility, I conclude that the Respondent’s registration should be revoked. Accordingly, that is my recommendation based on this record. Dated: March 24, 2014 Gail A.

Stoller Corporation, Kevil, Kentucky; Amended Certification Regarding Eligibility To Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance In accordance with Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended (‘‘Act’’), 19 U.S.C. 2273, the Department of Labor issued a Certification of Eligibility to Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance on June 11, 2014, applicable to workers of LATA Environmental Services of Kentucky, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Los Alamos Technical Associates, Inc., Kevil, Kentucky. The Department’s notice of VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:04 Oct 01, 2014 Jkt 235001 determination was published in the Federal Register on June 30, 2014 (79 FR 36827). At the request of a former worker, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm and the allegation that the worker group included on-site leased workers. The subject firm confirmed that workers leased from Babcock & Wilcox Technical Services Group and S.M. Stoller Corporation were employed onsite at the subject firm. The workers were engaged in environmental remediation services. The Department has determined that these workers were sufficiently under the control of the subject firm to be considered leased workers. Based on these findings, the Department is amending this certification to include workers leased from Babcock & Wilcox Technical Services Group and S.M. Stoller Corporation working on-site at LATA Environmental Services of Kentucky, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Los Alamos Technical Associates, Inc., Kevil, Kentucky.
