The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals heard oral argument in Veterans for Common Sense v. Shinseki. Veterans for Common Sense, and co-plaintiff Veterans United for Truth, asked the Court to order the Department of Veterans Affairs to reform the way it deals with disability claims for post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury. In a suit filed in July 2007 a lower court ruled that the judicial branch does not have the authority to order the VA to provide timely medical care.
