GRAY v. OFFICE OF PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT , 475 U.S. 1089 (1986)
475 U.S. 1089
Lawrence E. GRAY, Edward J. Murty, Jr. and Peter McC. Giesey
OFFICE OF PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT.
Supreme Court of the United States
March 24, 1986
On petition for writ of certiorari to the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
The petition for writ of certiorari is denied.
Justice WHITE, dissenting.
In this case the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit held that the comprehensive remedial scheme established by Congress in the Civil Service Reform Act of 1978 1 (CSRA) indicates a congressional intent to preclude judicial review under the Administrative Procedure Act 2 of claims that could have been reviewed administratively under the CSRA. 248 U.S.App.D.C. 364, 771 F.2d 1504 (1985). While eight other Courts of Appeals have reached a similar conclusion, the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit has held to the contrary. Dugan v. Ramsay, 727 F.2d 192 (1984). I would grant certiorari to resolve this conflict.
