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.
