This morning the Federal Circuit issued one precedential opinion in a Tucker Act case and one nonprecedential order denying a writ of mandamus. Here is the introduction to the opinion and text from the order.

Prestonback v. United States (Precedential)

Logan B. Prestonback appeals the decision of the United States Court of Federal Claims upholding the Army Board for Correction of Military Records’ denial of his request for waiver of the recoupment of his educational assistance debt by the United States Defense Finance and Accounting Service. Guided by this court’s precedential decision in Favreau v. United States, 317 F.3d 1346 (Fed. Cir. 2002), we affirm the Court of Federal Claims’ entry of judgment on the administrative record in favor of the Government.

In re Wine (Nonprecedential Order)

Mitchell Wine petitions for a writ of mandamus ordering the Merit Systems Protection Board to rescind his settlement agreement with the Department of the Interior (“the agency”), to reinstate his adverse action appeal, and to order the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (“FWS”) to produce, without redaction, documents he requested under the Freedom of Information Act and Privacy Act (collectively, “FOIA”). Mr. Wine also requests costs associated with the petition. The Board and the agency oppose the petition. Mr. Wine replies.
