John F. Desmond, Petitioner, v. Department of Defense, Respondent, 915 F.2d 1584 (Fed. Cir. 1990)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit - 915 F.2d 1584 (Fed. Cir. 1990) Sept. 24, 1990. Rehearing Denied Oct. 29, 1990

RICH, Circuit Judge, and SKELTON and BALDWIN, Senior Circuit Judges.


The initial decision of the Merit Systems Protection Board (board) dated February 20, 1990, which became final on March 27, 1990, Docket No. DC315H9010170, sustained the removal of John F. Desmond as a Marine Information Specialist by the Defense Mapping Agency of the Department of Defense during the probationary period of his employment. We have considered each of Desmond's arguments, but are unpersuaded that any error was committed by the administrative judge (AJ) or the full board. See Hayes v. Department of the Navy, 727 F.2d 1535 (Fed. Cir. 1984). Accordingly, on the basis of the AJ's opinion, the decision of the board is affirmed.
