Florencio I. Crispulo, Petitioner, v. Office of Personnel Management, Respondent, 864 F.2d 148 (Fed. Cir. 1988)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit - 864 F.2d 148 (Fed. Cir. 1988) Nov. 9, 1988

Before RICH, EDWARD S. SMITH, and PAULINE NEWMAN, Circuit Judges.


Florencio I. Crispulo petitions for review of a decision of the Merit Systems Protection Board (board), Docket No. SE08318510139, which became final on July 5, 1985. The initial decision explained that, once the initial decision became final on July 5, 1985, petitioner would have 30 days to file a petition for review with this Court if he desired judicial review of the board's decision. See 5 U.S.C. § 7703(b) (1). Petitioner did not seek review within the 30-day period; indeed, his petition is the better part of three years out of time. Accordingly, we are precluded from reviewing the merits of the petition and must dismiss the petition for lack of jurisdiction.
