UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FEDERAL CIRCUIT
Decided: July 9, 1993.
LORI M. CROSKEY, PLAINTIFF-APPELLANT,
THE UNITED STATES, DEFENDANT-APPELLEE.
Appeal from the United States Court of Federal Claims.
Before Rich, Rader, and Schall, Circuit Judges.
Lori M. Croskey appeals from the judgment of the United States Court of Federal Claims*fn1 granting the government's motion to dismiss for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. We affirm.
Ms. Croskey was separated from her position as a probationary employee with the Department of the Army on May 28, 1982. On October 9, 1990, she filed a complaint in the court below seeking money damages for wrongful termination and for travel expenses incurred during her employment. After being twice amended, Ms. Croskey's complaint sought money damages under the Tucker Act, 28 U.S.C. § 1491; the Back Pay Act, 5 U.S.C. § 5596; the False Claims Act, 28 U.S.C. § 2514; unspecified travel regulations; the First Amendment; and the Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment.
On November 20, 1992, the court granted the government's motion to dismiss the second amended complaint for lack of subject matter jurisdiction and because the claim was time-barred. After her motion for reconsideration was denied, Ms. Croskey timely appealed to this Court.
We affirm the judgment of the Court of Federal Claims and adopt, as the basis for our decision, the November 20, 1992 order of that court granting the government's motion to dismiss.*fn2
