United States v. Jones

United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit
29 F.3d 1549 (1994)


Marvin P. Jones (defendant) received a loan from the National Health Service Corps (NHSC) scholarship program that helped him pay for medical school. Jones then entered into an employment agreement with the United States Department of Health and Human Services, under which he agreed to work at a federal health clinic, Westside, in return for the forgiveness of his debt to NHSC. The agreement provided that Jones could be reassigned to another site if his employment at Westside was terminated but also stated that if Jones was terminated before the agreement’s end for failure to fulfill the employment requirements, then he would have to pay back his loan. Jones was terminated a year before the end of his contract, and Jones sued NHSC. During that suit, the court issued an order dated June 5, 1991, containing findings of fact and references to witness testimony stating that Jones was discharged due to poor attendance and interpersonal difficulties. A year later, the government sued Jones to recover the outstanding loan balance. The government now moves this court to take judicial notice of the findings in the June 5, 1991 order that Jones was discharged from his employment due to attendance and interpersonal difficulties as evidence that he failed to meet his employment requirements.
