Veterans for Common Sense reaches the Supreme Court

On January 4, 2013, the Supreme Court, in a private conference among its members, will decide whether to take up the Veterans For Common Sense case.  In this case, a District Court in California found that the Department of Veterans' Affairs failed to provide timely medical benefits and to timely resolve claims for service-connection.   The court did not put into action a plan for relief prior to the government's appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.  The Ninth Circuit held that the VA could not be sued over these issues in Court.  

Update: The Veterans for Common Sense lost their bid to have their case heard before the Supreme Court on January 2, 2013. For more on the initatives taken by the Veterans for Common Sense, visit their website at veteransforcommonsense.org.
