Shinseki v. Sanders, 07-1209

In an application for veterans' disability benefits, the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit's holding that the Department of Veterans Affairs erred in denying benefits is reversed, where the Federal Circuit's "harmless-error" framework conflicts with 38 U.S.C. section 7261(b)(2)'s requirement that the Veterans Court take "due account of the rule of prejudicial error."
