This morning the Federal Circuit released two nonprecedential opinions. The first comes in a case appealed from the Merit Systems Protection Board; the second comes in a veterans case appealed from the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. Here are the introductions to the opinions.
Conteh v. Department of Commerce (Nonprecedential)
Sanfa Conteh appeals from the decision of the Merit Systems Protection Board (“the Board”) affirming the Department of Commerce’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (“NOAA’s”) action of removing Mr. Conteh from the position of Second Assistant Engineer and from the Federal Service. We affirm.
Munoz v. McDonough (Nonprecedential)
Rodolfo Rivera Munoz (“Munoz”) appeals a decision of the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (“Veterans Court”). The Veterans Court dismissed Munoz’s appeal of a decision of the Board of Veterans’ Appeals after determining that his appeal was untimely under 38 U.S.C. § 7266(a) and not subject to equitable tolling.

We have considered Munoz’s other issues and find that none of them affect the outcome. Accordingly, because we lack jurisdiction under 38 U.S.C. § 7292, we must dismiss the appeal.
