This morning the Federal Circuit issued two nonprecedential opinions, one in a veterans case appealed from the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims and one in a case concerning the jurisdiction of the Court of Federal Claims. Here are the introductions to the opinions.
Martinez v. McDonough (Nonprecedential)
Johnny R. Martinez appeals a decision of the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (“Veterans Court”). The Veterans Court affirmed in part a decision of the Board of Veterans’ Appeals (“Board”) denying Mr. Martinez’s request to reverse or amend three rating decisions from March 1980, February 2009, and October 2012, finding no clear and unmistakable error (“CUE”). We dismiss.
Bowden v. United States (Nonprecedential)
Dichondra Bowden appeals a decision of the United States Court of Federal Claims dismissing her complaint for lack of jurisdiction. See Bowden v. United States, No. 1:20-cv-752, 2021 WL 306464 (Fed. Cl. Jan. 29, 2021). Because Ms. Bowden’s claims are outside the scope of the Court of Federal Claims’ jurisdiction, we affirm the dismissal.
