George v. McDonough

Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
21-234 Fed. Cir. TBD TBD TBD TBD OT 2021

Issue: Whether, when the Department of Veterans Affairs denies a veteran’s claim for benefits in reliance on an agency interpretation that is later deemed invalid under the plain text of the statutory provisions in effect at the time of the denial, that is the kind of “clear and unmistakable error” that the veteran may invoke to challenge VA’s decision.
