Issues: (1) Whether the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit erred in holding
that the Department
of Veterans Affairs enjoys a presumption that its medical
examiner is competent in every veterans-benefit
case; and (2) whether the Federal Circuit erred in
expanding the presumption of competency so that
the VA and reviewing courts presume, not only that
VA medical examiners are competent, but also that
they are specialists in the relevant area of medicine.
