This morning the Federal Circuit issued a nonprecedential opinion in a veterans benefits case appealed from the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. The Federal Circuit dismissed the case for lack of jurisdiction. Here is the introduction to the opinion.
Rackley v. McDonough (Nonprecedential)
This appeal involves a claim for veterans benefits. Appellant Pamela J. Rackley appeals the decision of the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims affirming the Board of Veterans’ Appeals denial of her claim for surviving spouse benefits based on the death of her former husband, Terry Miller. We lack jurisdiction to hear this appeal and therefore we dismiss.
