Ronald J. Roche (Roche) appeals from a decision of the Merit Systems Protection Board (board), docket number BN03538610201-1, dismissing his appeal. We affirm.


Substantial evidence supports the factual determination of the board that Roche's removal was not substantially related to his injury. Under our limited standard of review, 5 U.S.C. § 7703(c), the decision of the board dismissing Roche's appeal under 5 U.S.C. § 8151(b) (1) must be affirmed.
