Pedro H. Alvarez, Petitioner, v. Office of Personnel Management, Respondent, 831 F.2d 305 (Fed. Cir. 1987)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit - 831 F.2d 305 (Fed. Cir. 1987) September 9, 1987

Before MARKEY, Chief Judge, DAVIS, Circuit Judge, and BALDWIN, Senior Circuit Judge.



The Merit Systems Protection Board (board), Docket No. SE08318610365, dismissed the appeal of Pedro H. Alvarez (petitioner) as untimely filed. We affirm.


The Office of Personnel Management determined that petitioner is ineligible for a retirement annuity. Appeal of that decision was untimely filed. Since petitioner was given an opportunity but failed to satisfy his burden of showing good cause for the untimely filing, the board appropriately dismissed the appeal.
