Stephen C. Leckar and Robert A.W. Boraks were on the Appellees’ Motion to Remand to the Superior Court for a Determination of Appellees’ Eligibility for Attorney’s Fees and Expenses, and Appellees’ Bill of Costs.

Before RUIZ, GLICKMAN, AND FISHER, Associate Judges.

The underlying facts of this case are fully stated in our opinion on the merits,*fn1 and need not be repeated to answer the question now presented: where should a petition to recover statutorily authorized attorney’s fees for work done on an appeal to this court normally be filed? Shortly after we remanded this case to the Superior Court with instructions to return the matter to the District of Columbia Office of Employee Appeals for entry of an order reinstating appellees to their former positions with the Metropolitan Police Department, the appellees filed a “Motion to Remand to Superior Court Determination of Appellees’ Eligibility for Attorney’s Fees and Expenses,” as well as a Bill of Costs. Appellees contended that because they were hired by the District of Columbia government before 1980, the Federal Back Pay Act*fn2 presumptively entitled them to an award of attorney’s fees and expenses incurred in vindicating their rights on appeal.*fn3
