Latham et al. raise the following legal issues:  (1) May a denial of restoration be “arbitrary and capricious” within the meaning of 5 C.F.R. § 353.304(c) solely for being in violation of the U.S. Postal Service’s own internal rules; and (2) what is the extent of the agency’s restoration obligation under its own internal rules, i.e., under what circumstances do the agency’s rules require it to offer a given task to a given partially recovered employee as modified work?

Hyginus U. Aguzie v. Office of Personnel Management
MSPB Docket Number DC-0731-09-0261-R-1

Jenee Ella Hunt-O'Neal v. Office of Personnel Management
MSPB Docket Number AT-0731-09-0240-I-1

James A. Scott v. Office of Personnel Management
MSPB Docket Number CH-0731-09-0578-I-1

Holley C. Barnes v. Office of Personnel Management
MSPB Docket Number DC-0731-09-0260-R-1

Monday, October 18, 2010, at 10:00 a.m.
The United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit
Room 201
717 Madison Place
N.W., Washington D.C

Aguzie and several other cases pending before the Board present the following legal issue: When the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) directs an agency to separate a tenured employee for suitability reasons, must the Board consider a subsequent appeal under 5 C.F.R. part 731 as contemplated therein, or should the Board instead consider the appeal under 5 U.S.C. chapter 75, given that the scope of a chapter 75 appeal is broader than a part 731 appeal and that OPM generally lacks authority to issue regulations limiting statutory rights?

Devon Northover v. Department of Defense
MSPB Docket No. AT-0752-10-0184-I-1

Egan, 484 U.S. 518, 530-31 (1988), limiting the scope of MSPB review of an adverse action based on the revocation of a security clearance, also applies to an adverse action involving an employee in a "non-critical sensitive" position due to the employee having been denied continued eligibility for employment in a sensitive position.
