Dedrick v. Berry, No. 09-1082
In a mixed disability discrimination and disability retirement claim, the matter is transferred in its entirety to the Fourth Circuit for lack of jurisdiction where: 1) the present court is not the proper venue for review of the district court's dismissal of plaintiff's discrimination claim; and 2) the claims may not be bifurcated into two lines of review, and thus it was not possible to accept the transfer of solely plaintiff's disability retirement claim.
Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Maryland.
Decided July 21, 2009

Opinion by GAJARSA, Circuit Judge.
For Plaintiff: Edward C. Dedrick, Pro Se, North East, Maryland.
For Defendant: Dawn E. Goodman, United States Department of Justice, Washington, DC.
