Vern W. Englert, Plaintiff-appellant, v. Small Business Administration, Defendant-appellee, 28 F.3d 105 (9th Cir. 1994)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 28 F.3d 105 (9th Cir. 1994) Submitted June 15, 1994. *Decided June 20, 1994

Before: GOODWIN, PREGERSON, RYMER, Circuit Judges.


Vern W. Englert appeals pro se from the dismissal of his handicap discrimination claim against his former employer, the Small Business Administration ("SBA"). He contends that he was fired from his job as a SBA financial loan officer in violation of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, 29 U.S.C. § 794.

We agree with the district court that Englert abandoned his discrimination claim by not timely filing either a petition with the EEOC or a complaint in the district court within 30 days after the decision of the Merit Systems Protection Board became final.

The judgment is AFFIRMED.


The panel unanimously finds this case suitable for submission on the record and briefs and without oral argument. Fed. R. App. P. 34(a); Ninth Circuit Rule 34-4
