By FindLaw Staff on June 26, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims judgment is affirmed where the court properly held that plaintiff's finality claim was an impermissible freestanding challenge to the finality of a prior regional office decision, as the law does not recognize a freestanding finality claim filed after the period for direct appeal has expired.
