This morning, the Federal Circuit released two nonprecedential opinions, one nonprecedential order, and four Rule 36 summary affirmances. Both opinions address jurisdictional issues, with one affirming a Merit Systems Protection Board dismissal for lack of jurisdiction and another dismissing an appeal from the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims for lack of jurisdiction. The order grants a motion to withdraw a petition. Here are the introductions to the opinions and links to the withdrawal and summary affirmances.

Chin-Young v. Merit Systems Protection Board (Nonprecedential)

Christopher Chin-Young (petitioner), appearing pro se, petitions for review of the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB or Board) dismissing his appeal for lack of jurisdiction.  We affirm.

Remilien v. McDonough (Nonprecedential)

Jose Remilien appeals the final decision of the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims affirming the Board of Veterans’ Appeals’ decision denying Mr. Remilien benefits because he did not have qualifying military service to make him eligible to receive veteran benefits.  We must dismiss because we lack jurisdiction to hear Mr. Remilien’s appeal.
