Have you taken affirmative steps to rehabilitate? I suggest you obtain counsel experienced in dealing with the Board since they will base all decisions on factors other than mercy.See question

I agree with my colleague that it is difficult to sue government entities. In California, very generally speaking, you have to exhaust the agency's internal processes built in to fix a problem with the agency before a court will entertain your dispute.

Also the statute of limitations to do any of this is much shorter than traditional statute of limitations in regular civil contexts.See question
