Question

The Court Case mentioned by Jon Brown at SVR radio today with Dr. Bash is summarized here as to when 'lay evidence' can have a probative value regarding a diagnosis.

It is an important Federal Circuit court decision.

Jandreau v. Nicholson, 2007-7029

A decision denying claimant service connection for residuals of a right-shoulder dislocation is remanded for further proceedings where: 1) although a claim that the destruction of records while in the government's custody should result in a relaxed evidentiary standard for veterans is rejected; nevertheless 2) the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims improperly held that lay evidence cannot be used to establish a medical diagnosis.

When thousands of Americans faced annihilation in the 1800s Chief

Osceola's response to his people, the Seminoles, was

simply "They(the US Army)have guns, but so do we."

Sameo to us -They (VA) have 38 CFR ,38 USC, and M21-1- but so do we.
