Oscar Gallo, Jr., Petitioner, v. United States Postal Service, Respondent, 854 F.2d 1328 (Fed. Cir. 1988)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit - 854 F.2d 1328 (Fed. Cir. 1988) July 18, 1988

Before EDWARD S. SMITH, Circuit Judge, SKELTON, Senior Circuit Judge, and PAULINE NEWMAN, Circuit Judge.


Oscar Gallo, Jr. appeals the decision of the Merit Systems Protection Board, Docket No. CH07528710243, affirming with opinion the decision of the administrative judge. We have carefully reviewed the briefs and materials, and considered the arguments made at the hearing. In view of the heavy dependency of the board's decision on matters of credibility and our limited basis of review thereof, see Hambsch v. Department of the Treasury, 796 F.2d 430, 436 (Fed. Cir. 1986), and the discretion permitted in the management of administrative hearings, we discern no reversible error in the proceedings or in the board's decision. The decision is affirmed.
