Jackson v. Shinseki, No. 09-7015

By FindLaw Staff on November 25, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

The United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims decision that attorney-petitioner was not entitled to fees for the representation of her veteran-client in connection with a service disability claim is affirmed as, the client does not qualify for fees as the client's claim did not include the requisite evidence to support a total disability rating based on individual unemployability claim before the Board of Veteran Appeals, and as such, his claim was not part of the case as defined in 38 U.S.C. section 5904(c).
