Late yesterday and this morning, the Federal Circuit released one nonprecedential opinion and two nonprecedential orders. In the opinion, the court dismissed an appeal from the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. The Federal Circuit also issued two nonprecedential orders dismissing appeals. Here is the introduction to the opinion and links to the dismissals.
Hightower v. McDonough (Nonprecedential)
Herbert Hightower, a veteran of the U.S. Air Force, appeals a decision of the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims affirming a Board of Veterans’ Appeals’ decision denying Mr. Hightower a disability rating for tinnitus greater than 10%. Because Mr. Hightower’s arguments are beyond the limited jurisdiction of our court, we dismiss the appeal.
