The commission’s hearing officer said that Dobbs House, Miss Hickey’s employer, told him that they fired her because by drooling in the salad she had placed the Cloud room in a position “where it could not pass the state health inspection.” However, Thomas said the salad Miss Hickey was serving was never served to a customer.
