Akerman v. Merit Systems Protection Board

Pro Se

Question(s) Presented

1. “Jurisdiction Over Habeas Corpus Decisions from the Federal Circuit: Does jurisdiction over habeas corpus decisions originating within the administrative state, particularly those adjudicated by the Federal Circuit, reside under federal authority pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1254(1), or state authority as per 28 U.S.C. § 1257(a)?”

2. “Implications of Respondent Designation in Habeas Corpus Cases: Given the stipulations of 28 U.S.C. § 2254 on the importance of correctly naming respondents in habeas corpus cases, what are the jurisdictional and procedural implications of designating only the Merit Systems Protection Board as the respondent in cases involving military contexts and issues of federal and judicial immunity?”

3. “Constitutional Mandate for Habeas Corpus Challenges: Is it incumbent upon a judicial body, under the Constitution, to permit challenges to ‘custody under or by the color of the authority of the United States, or committed for trial before some court thereof,’ through habeas corpus petitions?”

4. “Spoliation in the Context of Interlocutory Appeal and the Brady Rule: Within the realm of federal administrative law, specifically concerning quasi-judicial bodies like the Merit Systems Protection Board, what are the legal implications of spoliation of evidence in relation to interlocutory appeals and the obligations of disclosure as mandated by the Brady rule?”
