This morning, the Federal Circuit released two nonprecedential opinions. Both address pro se appeals from decisions of the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. Here are their introductions.

Torrez v. McDonough (Nonprecedential Opinion)

Cynthia A. Torrez appeals an order from the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (Veterans Court) denying her petition for a writ of mandamus.  We affirm-in-part and dismiss-in-part.

Randolph v. McDonough (Nonprecedential Opinion)

Claimant-Appellant Robert E. Randolph appeals pro se from a June 16, 2022 United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (“Veterans Court”) decision, Randolph v. McDonough, No. 20-5809, 2022 WL 2167995 (Vet. App. June 16, 2022) (“Decision”), affirming a July 1, 2020 Board of Veterans’ Appeals (“Board”) order that dismissed Mr. Randolph’s clear and unmistakable error (“CUE”) claim relating to his June 1987 rating decision, S. App’x 11–14. Specifically, Mr. Randolph’s CUE claim was dismissed as moot because the Veterans Court found the June 1987 rating decision was not final as to the denial of sinusitis.  S. App’x 14.  For the reasons discussed below, we dismiss Mr. Randolph’s appeal for lack of jurisdiction.
