MSPB Annual Report for FY 2015

The Board's annual report describes the last few years as "the most challenging in MSPB history and among the most rewarding." The Board has had more than it shares of problems, some internal, some, like the tsunami of furlough appeals, external. Throughout the Board retains its cheery outlook for the future, noting the resolution of about 97% of the furlough initial appeals. The MSPB Chairman describes her responses to congressional inquiries concerning several legislative initiatives directed to changes in traditional civil service approaches to personnel issues at the Department of Veterans Affairs. The annual report provides lots of statistics on adjudication and settlement of appeals, as well as a summary of significant Board and court decisions for FY 2015. Check it out. It is on the Board website at mspb.gov/netsearch/viewdocs.aspx?docnumber=1275851&version=1280945.

Federal Circuit Judicial Conference and Pro Bono Opportunities

The Federal Circuit's Judicial Conference is on April 11, 2016, and we're informed that space is available. The event is at the Grand Hyatt Washington, offers CLE credit for the CLE-needy. It will include an afternoon MSPB breakout session. The conference will be addressed by the Chief Justice as well as by the luncheon speaker, the Solicitor General. Details of the menu remain under cover, but the conference is always an enjoyable and informative break from routine legal practice. Check it out at the Federal Circuit's website, conference.cafc.uscourts.gov

And speaking of events outside the traditional practice, the Federal Circuit has a pro bono program for representation of potential clients before the Board and the Circuit who cannot afford to retain counsel. It is an excellent opportunity to gain some experience and serve a worthy cause. Government counsel need to confirm their ability to provide representation through their ethics office and with regard to 18 USC 205. Definitely check it out, at the Federal Circuit's website, fedcirbar.org/Pro-Bono-Scholarships/Government-Employees-Pro-Bono/Overview-FAQ
