Mclaughlin v. Office of Pers. Mgmt., No. 03-3049 (Fed Cir. Jan. 6, 2004).
Because substantial evidence supports the Merit Systems Protection Board's conclusion that plaintiff was not mentally incompetent during the one-year statutory filing period prescribed by 5 U.S.C. Sec. 8453, its decision that she is not entitled to a waiver of the deadline is affirmed. To read this opinion, go to: http://laws.lp.findlaw.com/fed/033049.html.
