Ex-Con Wins ADA Case Against PacBell

Joshua Josephs claimed his criminal record was clean when he applied for a service technician position with Pacific Bell in 1998.

Several months after the company hired him, PacBell received the results of Josephs' background check, which revealed some disturbing information.
