(2004) MSPB Basics

Written by Peter Broida, author of the encyclopedic Guide to Merit Systems Protection Board Law and Practice, this how-to guide condenses and simplifies the major components of MSPB litigation. MSPB Basics explains Board processes and highlights some of the more important Board and Federal Circuit cases. This text is written for the principal benefit of appellants, and also for private sector counsel who will have one or several Board cases but who do not need a major treatise on Board caselaw or intensive treatment of every aspect of Board and Federal Circuit procedure, and is an excellent starting point for independent research. Topics covered are:

  • Overview of the Merit Systems Protection Board—including Board organization and function and cases that the Board adjudicates
  • Filing the Appeal—including appeal contents, an example appeal, and discussion of complex appeals
  • The Agency’s Response to the Appeal and Preliminary Motions—including necessary components of the response
  • Discovery Basics—including the document requests, interrogatories, depositions and requests for admissions, and timing of discovery
  • Motion Practice—including motions for more time, to strike, for sanctions, to recuse judge, and to compel discovery
  • Discrimination Issues—including how to raise a complaint of discrimination before the MSPB
  • Preparation for the Hearing—including prehearing orders and submissions and the prehearing conference
  • The Hearing—including evidence presentation and organization and closing arguments and posthearing briefs
  • Settlement—including how to define your needs and put it on paper, making sure your bases are covered and enforcement
  • The Office of Special Counsel—including discussion of whistleblower reprisal
  • Petition for Review—including PFR substance and settlement at the PFR level
  • Interaction With the Judge and Opposing Counsel
  • Federal Circuit Appeals
  • Review of Cases Involving EEO Issues
  • Significant Cases of the Board—including seminal cases relating to jurisdiction, timeliness, procedural due process, hearing, evidence, penalties, misconduct, and affirmative defenses

A detailed table of contents is also included.
