US Supreme Court Docket
Eric K. Shinseki, Secretary of Veterans Affairs v. Woodrow F. Sanders
Administrative Law, Veterans Affairs, Government Benefits
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.
