PITTSBURGH – A West Virginia man and former federal employee alleges the federal department where he worked refuses to let him collect his personal belongings.

Ayyakkanu Manivannan filed a complaint on July 12 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania against The United States of America alleging negligence and other counts.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff was employed by the Department of Energy and his employment ended in June 2016. He alleges he repeatedly requested that the department let him or his counsel return to his office to collect his personal things but the department refused.

The plaintiff alleges the department's refusal to let him collect his personal belongings has prevented him from working in the private sector.

The plaintiff is seeking an order for the Department of Energy to return his personal property, costs and interest. The plaintiff is represented by Dylan F. Henry and John Powell of Montgomery, McCracken, Walker & Rhoads LLP in Philadelphia.
