Rosalina Vda De Gonzales, Petitioner, v. Office of Personnel Management, Respondent, 862 F.2d 320 (Fed. Cir. 1988)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit - 862 F.2d 320 (Fed. Cir. 1988) Oct. 11, 1988

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


Petitioner Rosalina Vda De Gonzales appeals the decision of the Merit Systems Protection Board (board), Docket No. SE08318810170, which sustained the Office of Personnel Management's reconsideration decision denying petitioner's application for a survivor annuity under the Federal Civil Service retirement system. After carefully considering petitioner's arguments, we affirm the board's decision on the basis of its opinion, because the decision is not 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 USC Sec. 7703(c) (1982).
