Supreme Court ruling allows feds to appeal some discrimination cases in district court

The Supreme Court ruled Monday that federal employees can appeal decisions of the Merit Systems Protection Board stemming from discrimination-related complaints in federal district court. The ruling follows earlier lower court decisions that required employee appeals to go solely through the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. The justices' decision applies to federal employees filing "mixed cases" complaints involving both allegations of wrongful termination and job discrimination under the Civil Service Reform Act.

If he is convicted by a U.S. court, McKinnon could face up to 70 years in prison.
