Chief Roberts Startled

The US Supreme Court recently heard about how things operate in the VA world. Chief Justice Roberts was shocked when a government lawyer admitted the VA was wrong about 70% of the time. The discussion came up in a social security case where the Chief Justice learned the government was not substantially justified in the positions it asserted in 40% of social security cases and over 70% in veteran cases. Those of us who practice before the US Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims know that the VA is wrong closer to 90% of the time. Maybe now the Supreme Court will pay attention to the problems we all face in that veteran system. Read a recent article how Justice Roberts responded to the startling news.
