Holmes v. Potter, 07-2138

Reduction in former postal employee's annuity was not a breach of the settlement agreement arising from his Rehabilitation Act claim, because although that agreement did set his retirement date: 1) the agreement did not discuss the amount of money he would be paid during retirement or how that retirement pay would be computed; and 2) the agreement was unambiguous, and therefore the mediator's statements to the plaintiff were inadmissible.
