Alvin Hite, Petitioner, v. Department of Veterans Affairs, 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. 27, 1990

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


The initial decision of the Merit Systems Protection Board (board) dated January 22, 1990, which became final on February 26, 1990, Docket No. DA07529010012, sustained the removal of Alvin Hite as a GS-4 Medical Supply Technician of the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center in New Orleans, Louisiana, by the agency for being absent without leave, and for being under the influence of an intoxicant at the work place. We have considered each of Hite'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.
