Virginia A. Mccann, Plaintiff-appellant, v. Sheila Widnall, Acting Secretary of the Air Force, Defendant-appellee, 13 F.3d 406 (10th Cir. 1993)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit - 13 F.3d 406 (10th Cir. 1993) Dec. 21, 1993

Before MOORE and BRORBY, Circuit Judges, and VRATIL,**  District Judge.


After examining the briefs and appellate record, this panel has determined unanimously that oral argument would not materially assist the determination of this appeal. See Fed. R. App. P. 34(a); 10th Cir. R. 34.1.9. The case is therefore ordered submitted without oral argument.

Plaintiff appeals the district court's decision dismissing her complaint without prejudice, pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b) (1), after concluding it lacked subject matter jurisdiction over plaintiff's asserted causes of action. Plaintiff, a civilian social worker employed by the Air Force, alleged three causes of action under the Administrative Procedure Act, see 5 U.S.C. 701-06, challenging both the Air Force's revocation of her clinical privileges, which were necessary to her continued employment with the Air Force, and the procedures the Air Force used to revoke those privileges.

This court reviews a district court's decision concerning its subject matter jurisdiction de novo. Williams v. United States, 957 F.2d 742, 743 (10th Cir. 1992). Upon careful review of the record and the parties' arguments on appeal, we find no legal error. We, therefore, AFFIRM the decision of the United States District Court for the District of Colorado for substantially the reasons stated in that court's order and memorandum dated January 31, 1993.


Honorable Kathryn H. Vratil, District Judge, United States District Court for the District of Kansas, sitting by designation
