This morning, the Federal Circuit released a nonprecedential opinion in a case appealed from the Merit Systems Protection Board addressing untimeliness of a petition for review. Late yesterday and this morning, the court also released four nonprecedential orders dismissing appeals. Here is the introduction to the opinion and links to the orders.
Neese v. Merit Systems Protection Board (Nonprecedential)
Ashley B. Neese appeals the decision of the Merit Systems Protection Board (Board) which dismissed her appeal as untimely. Because we agree that collateral estoppel bars Ms. Neese from relitigating the untimeliness of the previous appeal she filed with the Board, we affirm.
