Although plaintiff has attached to this complaint a decision from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission dated July 22, 2009, he states that "[t]his case is about getting paid for service rendered; not about being disabled . . .," Compl. at 5, and has not alleged any facts in support of a discrimination claim.
Circuit. Fornaro v. James, 416 F.3d 63, 66 (D.C. Cir. 2005). A separate order of dismissal accompanies this Memorandum.
