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.

I'm a Viet Nam vet-service connected-2012 my primary refused me medical care twice, refused to order my diabetic shoes + other offences-been through the SF-95 process where a VA defendant employee also legal council for defendant VA has complete control of the investigation with absolutely no accountability and can and does enter false info into the records. In the end your constitutional rights are denied namely your Due process including discovery ref: exemption #5 and or #6 of the FOIA. Employees of the VAMC are told by the VA regional office that it is unlawful to speak to the veteran. This includes the patience advocate. I have asked for that legal cite by certified mail with no reply. These unconstitutional powers of the VA should be removed.
