OPINION ISSUED MAY 2, 1990
WORKERS' COMPENSATION FUND
No appearance by claimant.
Lowell D. Greenwood, Assistant Attorney General, for respondent.
In this claim, submitted for decision upon the pleadings, claimant seeks $12,087.60 for office
equipment rental and maintenance.
In its Answer the respondent admits the allegations of fact set forth in the Notice of Claim and
acknowledges that the claimant is entitled to $12,087.60. The respondent further alleges that
sufficient funds were not available at the end of the fiscal year in question with which the claim
could have been paid.
While we feel that this is a claim which in equity and good conscience should be paid, we are of
further opinion that an award cannot be made based on our decision in Airkem Sales and Service et.
al. vs. Department of Mental Health, 8 Ct.Cl. 180 (1971).
Claim is disallowed.
