Short shrift for disabled vets
Supreme Court Refuses to Hear Case

Veterans seeking to contest the denial by the Department of Veterans Affairs of their claims to a service-connected disability face a difficult procedural hurdle created by the VA and endorsed by the federal courts that was clearly not intended by Congress when it established the disability claim review process. This week the U.S. Supreme Court delivered a blow to those veterans when it decided not to consider the issue, even though the court acknowledged the harm it creates.

In the case the court refused to hear, a veteran named Freddie H. Mathis complained that a rule adopted by the Board of Veterans’ Appeals and upheld by the Veterans’ Court and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, denied him the opportunity to challenge the competence of a doctor who had denied his disability claim.  Supreme Court Refuses to Hear Case
