Judge approves big vets' PTSD settlement

#Vets win, as a #court approves a big #PTSD class-action claim.

In a 14-page decision, U.S. Court of Federal Claims Judge George Miller has approved a class-action settlement covering several thousand veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. The claim was filed by the National Veterans Legal Services Program and the pro-bono co-counsel, Morgan, Lewis & Bockius.

The settlement itself, fully unveiled in July, provides lifetime disability retirement benefits to 1,029 veterans with PTSD. Under the agreement , the military also agreed to increase the PTSD disability rating of another 1,066 vets.

Judge Miller, in his Dec. 22 decision approving the settlement, noted that 96 percent of the class-action members who responded were in favor of the deal; he praised, as well, the attorneys for plaintiffs and government alike for their "zealous, dedicated, and thorough" work.
