CAVC–GRAHAM V McDONALD- THE BUCKHANNON CATALYST THEORY

Judge Davis just announced my denial for EAJA fees yesterday afternoon. It took him almost six months of struggle to write it. As the decision is horribly flawed, it will be appealed for a panel decision first. If that fails, we set … Continue reading

CAVC–WADE v. SHINSEKI–BONO PRO $18,000 ME Ø

WHERE’S MY CUT OF THE EAJA FEES, DUDE? Every once in a while, we see a case here that induces compassion for the Veteran. If there is a God, he was AWOL this time. Occasionally we’d post some under “Frivolous … Continue reading
