Judge Rules In Favor of Reinstated County Employee

Noble enjoyed an exemplary record as a child protective services worker, but was terminated after entering Lompoc’s homeless shelter under false pretenses with her son to spend the night and investigate the conditions for an op-ed she was writing.
