Arthur H. Young, Sr. Petitioner, v. United States Postal Service, 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

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


The initial decision of the Merit Systems Protection Board (board), dated February 16, 1990, which became final on March 23, 1990, Docket No. DA07529010040, sustained the United States Postal Service's removal of Arthur H. Young, Sr. from his position as a mail handler because he was physically unable to perform the full duties of his job. He could not be assigned to another position that he could handle because there was no vacancy, and the agency was not required to create a new job for him. We have carefully considered each of Young'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.
