For the first time in history, the federal courts have opened up the ability for plaintiffs to file class action lawsuits against the Department of Veterans Affairs. This move, according to legal experts, will enable a host of different cases to be brought against the bureaucracy. The decision has the potential to affect thousands of veterans who have “appropriate cases” that until now did not meet the standards of the court. The case that established this precedent is Godsey v. Wilkie and was seeking relief for veterans that waited extraordinary amounts of time for the department to certify their benefits appeal claims. The case was filed in 2017 and was successfully argued by council, to include a broader class of veterans other than the four original plaintiffs.
Veterans Can Now File VA Class Action Suits
This new legal precedent could allow groups of veterans to sue the department to help force action on benefit and programming issues. There were over 2,000 veterans awaiting certification on their appeals claims and now veterans have the power to help change the issues that have plagued the VA over many years. In a 2-1 decision, the court allowed plaintiffs to be included in the class action, if they have waited at least 18 months to advance their appeal. According to the court, these long wait times deprive veteran plaintiffs of their due process and right to speedy remediation.
This decision is a huge win for all veterans, especially those who have been deprived of their constitutional right to appeal.
