Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit - 824 F.2d 979 (Fed. Cir. 1987) June 9, 1987

Before MARKEY, Chief Judge, and RICH and BISSELL, Circuit Judges.



The decision of the Merit Systems Protection Board (board), Docket No. NY831M8610465, dismissing Sharon E. Henderson's appeal for failing to comply with 5 C.F.R. Sec. 1201.24, is affirmed.


The board repeatedly advised Henderson that her notice of appeal to the board failed to provide the necessary information so that the board could process her appeal. The board specifically detailed the information that she should have provided and ordered her to do so advising her that failure to comply would result in dismissal of her appeal. Because Henderson has failed to comply with the board's order, the board correctly dismissed the appeal.

We affirm on the basis of the board's opinion because we do not find the decision arbitrary, capricious, an abuse of discretion, or otherwise not in accordance with law, or obtained without procedures required by law, rule, or regulation having been followed, or unsupported by substantial evidence. 5 U.S.C. § 7703(c) (1982); see Hayes v. Department of the Navy, 727 F.2d 1535, 1537 (Fed. Cir. 1984).
