DENVER (AP) - A Colorado toxicology lab technician fired for mistakes made on DUI blood samples is fighting to keep his job.
According to the Denver Post, Mitchell Fox-Rivera is blaming a supervisor after he was accused of failing to follow standard procedures on 1,700 DUI blood samples in the lab, which resulted in incorrect readings. Attorneys are now challenging the test results in court.
Fox-Rivera says he is a recent college graduate and his work was supposed to be reviewed by a supervisor.
Health-department spokesman Mark Salley says the department cannot comment because it's a personnel matter.
