Lal v. Merit Sys. Prot. Bd., 2015-3140

In an action brought by a plaintiff who was terminated from her position as a distinguished consultant at the Centers for Disease Control, the Board's decision that it lacked jurisdiction over petitioner's removal because she had been appointed pursuant to 42 U.S.C. section 209(f), is reversed where although 209(f) places petitioner into the excepted service, it does not exempt her from the Civil Service Due Process Amendments of 1990, which provide appeal rights to certain excepted service employees.
