This morning, the Federal Circuit issued one nonprecedential opinion dismissing an appeal of a denial of benefits in a veterans case decided by the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. Here is the introduction to the opinion.

Howard v. Wilkie (Nonprecedential)

Cornell Howard appeals from the decision of the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (“the Veterans Court”) affirming a decision of the Board of Veterans’ Appeals (“the Board”) denying service connection. See Howard v. Wilkie, No. 18-1487, 2019 WL 5598324 (Vet. App. Oct. 31, 2019) (“Decision”). Because Howard raises only factual issues over which we lack jurisdiction, we dismiss the appeal.
