This morning, the Federal Circuit issued a precedential opinion in a veterans case. Here is the introduction to the opinion.

Morse v. McDonough (Precedential)

Appellant Edward C. Morse, a veteran, seeks to have the benefits he is receiving for a service-connected disability made retroactive to the date he first filed a claim for those benefits. The Board of Veterans’ Appeals denied his request, and the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (“the Veterans Court”) upheld the Board’s decision. We affirm.
