A soccer referee has been ordered reinstated in his job because he was fired without due process.
That was a decision released Monday from the Sala IV constitutional court. The decision is against the Asociación Sureña de Árbitros de Fútbol Sala.
The referee was identified by the last name of Benavides Moreno. He was suspended in July from his job for two years, according to the court decision summary. The referee complained to the court that he did not have a chance to defend himself and was not presented with any charges.
The court summary did not explain why the Sala IV has jurisdiction over what appears to be a private association.
