Fagan v. Shinseki, No. 08-7112

By FindLaw Staff on July 22, 2009 1:53 PM

United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims judgment denying a claim for service connection benefits for bilateral hearing loss is affirmed where the court did not misinterpret the benefit of the doubt doctrine under 38 U.S.C. sec. 5107(b), and properly decided that claimant could not benefit from the doctrine because the preponderance of evidence weighed against a nexus between his further hearing loss and his military service.
