Cavc Claim Update

Question

My case went to the CAVC in March of 2012 and to a judge in August of 2013. Yesterday I got an email from my attorney. The Court has looked over your case, and identified it as a possible case for oral argument. Oral arguments are very rare in the Court, so this means the Court views your case as having some important issues. So now we're on a 15 day stay while he and the VA negotiate for either approval or remand. More than likely it will be a remand if they come to terms.

OGC came to my attorney when he proposed oral arguments on AO usage up in Laos (March 2013). VA promptly bought us out. You may have already won but be careful how they phrase it. They are the past masters of the three card Monte game when they do those Joint remands. Just make sure there's iron in the words. If your atty has cajones, he'll ask for specific concessions and not an open ended JMR that "promises" to review some evidence. Too many Vets have just ended up with a new noose using the old rope e.g. same denial with new words and legal justification.

I don't think there's a lack of stones on this guy. He's been like an f'en bulldog and we had an answer for every VA reason for the orignal denials.

We'll see how it goes in next couple of weeks.

The JMR is often an "excuse to delay", not that they need one of those. My JMR was simply a one way ticket to the hampster wheel.

My claim went to a three judge panel in December of 2013 after sitting with a single judge for about 8 months. This is the second time it has gone to the CAVC after a remand back to BVA to fix errors the BVA made themselves. I understand very well why VA would not want AskNod's AO claim to go forward because if he won it would open a new area for "boots on the ground" AO exposure. I don't understand exactly why VA would make a deal to avoid a panel hearing on Daklander's claim. What is the issue the VA is afraid of exploring?

snip.....What is the issue the VA is afraid of exploring?

One could be that they came to the conclusion that I'm not qualified to identify an agent orange barrel, a barrel that was used on the ship as a BBQ Grill. They also, against maritime rules, determined that the pier at Danang harbor is not part of the land because, as they claimed, Danang is wide open to the sea.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
