MSPB Chairman’s Departure Results in a Loss of Board Quorum
Due to Chairman Tsui’s departure, and because there is already an existing vacancy on the board, there will be a resulting loss of Board quorum. Therefore, the board will not be able to act on any petition for review until a quorum is restored by the nomination and confirmation of at least one new member.
Parties may still file petitions for review by the MSPB board, but until a quorum is restored, parties may also exercise their right to appeal directly to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, another U.S. court of appeals, or a U.S. district court.
