Craig Williams appeals the decision of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York, No. 87-CIV-8971, dismissing, for failure to state a claim on which relief could be granted, Williams' appeal from the decision of the Merit Systems Protection Board (board), No. NY07528610442, (M.S.P.B. January 7, 1987). The appeal has been transferred from the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, No. 88-6083 (2d Cir. May 25, 1989).* We affirm the dismissal by the district court.



This court affirmed the board's decision in Williams v. United States Postal Service, No. 87-3212 (Fed.Cir. July 10, 1987). We agree with the district court that Williams' several complaints before it sought review of the board's decision and thus failed to state a claim on which the district court could grant relief. Williams has now exhausted all avenues for review of the board decision.


The law of the case is that we have jurisdiction. See Christianson v. Colt Indus. Operating Corp., --- U.S. ----, 108 S.Ct. 2166, 2178-79 (1988)
