Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit - 824 F.2d 976 (Fed. Cir. 1987) April 13, 1987

Before RICH, Circuit Judge, NICHOLS, Senior Circuit Judge, and SMITH, Circuit Judge.


The Merit Systems Protection Board, in NYO7528610395, sustained the removal of Frederico A. Richards from his position as a city carrier because he was AWOL from March 5, 1986, through March 26, 1986, and violated the terms of his last chance settlement agreement in which he agreed to maintain his work schedule. We affirm.

Petitioner has only himself to blame if, as he claims, important evidence was not considered by the board; petitioner was given adequate opportunity to provide timely documentary evidence and testimony in support of his claim that he was disabled during the period in which he was AWOL. The decision of the board was not arbitrary, capricious, an abuse of discretion, unsupported by substantial evidence, or otherwise not in accordance with law. See 5 USC 7703(c).
