Samuel M. Rizzitelli v. FLRA, 212 F.3d 710 (2d Cir. 2000), reviewing Case No. BN-CO-80486.

The Second Circuit dismissed for lack of subject matter jurisdiction a petition for review of the General Counsel's refusal to issue a ULP complaint. The court reasoned that the decision was not a "final order" within the meaning of section 7123(a) of the Statute.

FLRA v. U.S. Department of Justice, No. 97-4001 (2d Cir. Oct. 7, 1999)[unpublished decision], enforcing Case Nos. BN-CA-50149, BN-CA-50156, BN-CA-50698, BN-CA-50700, and BN- CA-50701.

On remand from the Supreme Court (119 S. Ct. 2387 (1999)), the Second Circuit enforced the Authority's order in the above-referenced cases. The Authority found that the Agency committed ULPs when it denied an exclusive representative and certain unit employees their section 7114(a)(2)(B) representation rights during Office of the Inspector General (OIG) investigations. The Supreme Court had vacated an earlier Second Circuit decision that denied the Authority's application for enforcement, instructing the court to reconsider its decision in light of NASA v. FLRA,
