Skaar v. McDonough


Question(s) Presented

“Congress established the United States Court of Veterans Appeals (Veterans Court) and granted it ‘exclusive jurisdiction to review adverse decisions of the Board of Veterans’ Appeals’ (Board), a component of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). 38 U.S.C. § 7252. After VA acknowledged ‘that the Veterans Court has authority to certify a class for class action or similar aggregate resolution procedure,’ Monk v. Shulkin, 855 F.3d 1312, 1318 (2017), the Veterans Court promulgated rules for class practice.”

“The question presented is:”

“Does the Veterans Court have statutory or inherent authority to include veterans whose individual claims are not yet exhausted in a class seeking injunctive relief, where the court has jurisdiction over a named representative’s claim?”
