Using the data set from T-240 to T+302 sec from recent telemetry 
downlinks, we report further analysis of BAT GRB 100514A (trigger 
#421962) (Markwardt, et al., GCN Circ. 10759). The BAT ground-calculated 
position is RA, Dec = 328.757, 29.175 deg, which is
    RA(J2000)  =  21h 55m 01.7s
    Dec(J2000) = +29d 10' 29.8"
with an uncertainty of 2.5 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment). 
The partial coding was 76%.

The mask-weighted light curve shows FRED-like peak starting at ~T-2 sec, 
peaking at ~T+7 sec, and ending at ~T+38 sec.  T90 (15-350 keV) is 26.2 
+- 8.2 sec (estimated error including systematics).

The time-averaged spectrum from T+0.3 to T+30.8 sec is best fit by a 
simple power-law model.  The power law index of the time-averaged 
spectrum is 1.97 +- 0.25.  The fluence in the 15-150 keV band is 4.0 +- 
0.7 x 10-7 erg/cm2.  The 1-sec peak photon flux measured from T+6.23 sec 
in the 15-150 keV band is 0.6 +- 0.2 ph/cm2/sec.  All the quoted errors 
are at the 90% confidence level.
