This morning, the Federal Circuit released one nonprecedential opinion. The opinion addresses a pro se petition for review of a judgment of the Merit Systems Protection Board. Here is the introduction to the opinion.

Mellick v. Department of the Interior (Nonprecedential Opinion)

Tyler A. Mellick, a former employee of the U.S. Department of the Interior, appeals a decision from the Merit Systems Protection Board. The decision affirmed an administrative judge’s ruling that dismissed Mr. Mellick’s appeal of his termination for violating a Last Chance Agreement based on lack of jurisdiction. Because we hold that Mr. Mellick waived his appeal rights by executing the Last Chance Agreement and did not provide substantial evidence that the waiver of his appeal rights should not be enforced, we affirm the Merit Systems Protection Board’s decision.
