Court Of Appeals For Veterans Claims
The Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims in Washington, D.C., is the newest Federal Court, having been created by the U.S. Congress in 1988. Until its creation, a Veteran who was denied disability benefits had virtually no remedy outside of the Veterans Administration. The Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims is an historic opportunity for Veterans to obtain full judicial review of their cases, by neutral judges who are not employed by the Veterans Administration.
The Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims has jurisdiction or power to hear a Veteran's claim, once it has been denied by the Board of Veterans Appeals. Recent legislation now allows Veterans to hire attorneys to represent them with their appeals before the Court. Until that time, few attorneys were ever involved in representing Veterans in their appeals. Today, most representation before the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims is performed by attorneys, who have the skill to research and author complicated legal arguments.
In calendar year 2010, more than 4,000 appeals were filed with the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. In 2010, over 60% of cases heard by the Court were granted reversals or full/partial remands back to the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims.
There are six (6) Judges on the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims: Chief Judge Bruce Kasold; Judge Lawrence Hagel; Judge William Moorman; Judge Alan G. Lance, Sr.; Judge Robert N. Davis and Judge Mary Schoelen.
The filing fee charged by the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims is $50.00.
