BLANCA A. RUIZ, Petitioner, v. MERIT SYSTEMS PROTECTION BOARD, Respondent, AND UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE, Intervenor.


NOTE: This order is nonprecedential.

Petition for review of the Merit Systems Protection Board in No. DA0353110628-B-1.

ON MOTION


ORDER

The United States Postal Service (USPS) moves to reform the caption to name the Merit Systems Protection Board (Board) as respondent and USPS as intervenor. Blanca A. Ruiz opposes.

Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. § 7703(a)(2), the Board is designated as the respondent when the Board's decision concerns the procedure or jurisdiction of the Board. The employing agency is designated as the respondent when the Board reaches the merits of the underlying case. Here, the Board dismissed this appeal for lack of jurisdiction. Thus, the Board is the proper respondent in this petition for review.

Accordingly,

IT IS ORDERED THAT:

The motions are granted. The revised official caption is reflected above.

FOR THE COURT
