Below you will find links to briefs filed yesterday in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit by Fellows in support of the College's efforts to seek justice for our disabled veterans. As you know the College, through the efforts of the Special Problems in the Administration of Justice (U.S.) Committee, has been working through many dedicated Fellows to help with the deprivation of due process to our veterans in the failure to adjudicate disability claims in a time that could ever be considered fair. The brief lays out the legal theory but just as importantly the history of this problem and the real world consequences to our clients.
I know we all have a lot to do, but I urge you to read these important briefs. It will make you angry and frustrated but it will also make you proud that these Fellows have done such great work. Steve Raber and his team at Williams & Connolly, Beth Tanis and our leader John Chandler have done the good and hard work on this brief. Denny Shupe and his team at Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis along with Dick Rosenbleeth from Blank Rome have helped throughout this process.
Thanks to all of you for doing this important work.
