The emergency medical technician fired in the case involving former New York Times reporter David Rosenbaum has been ordered back on the job.

The D.C. Court of Appeals has ruled the city illegally fired Selena Walker, the EMT who authorities say drove a critically wounded Rosenbuam to a far away hospital so she could run errands in her neighborhood.

Rosenbaum was mugged near his Chevy Chase home but was initially assessed by first-responders as being drunk. At the hospital, doctors discovered Rosenbaum had a critical head wound and that important time had been lost. Rosenbaum died two days later.

The judge said the district missed a 90 day deadline to fire Walker. She is now eligible for years of back pay.
