Timothy A. Turner, Petitioner, v. Veterans Administration, Respondent, 864 F.2d 149 (Fed. Cir. 1988)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit - 864 F.2d 149 (Fed. Cir. 1988) Nov. 16, 1988

Before FRIEDMAN, NIES and ARCHER, Circuit Judges.


Mr. Turner petitions for review of the Order of the Merit Systems Protection Board (Board), No. SF07528710884, dismissing his appeal to the Board as untimely filed. As the Board found, Mr. Turner's appeal was not filed within the twenty-day period prescribed by 5 C.F.R. Sec. 1201.22(b) (1988) and he failed to show good cause why the time limit should be waived. Accordingly, since we are not persuaded that the Board erred, see 5 U.S.C. § 7703(c) (1982), its decision is affirmed.
