Shinseki v. Sanders
No. 07-1209

Title:

    Eric K. Shinseki, Secretary of Veterans Affairs v. Woodrow F. Sanders

Subject:

    Administrative Law, Veterans Affairs, Government Benefits

Question:

    The Veterans Claims Assistance Act of 2000 (VCAA), Pub. L. No. 106-475, 114
    Stat. 2096, requires the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to provide a notice to
    benefits claimants. Under 38 U.S.C. 7261(b)(2) (Supp. V 2005), review of
    administrative decisions resolving claims for veterans benefits must “take due
    account of the rule of prejudicial error.” The question presented is:

    Whether the court of appeals erred in holding that a failure of the VA to give the
    notice required by the VCAA must be presumed to be prejudicia.
