VA hit with class action lawsuit from Vietnam vet over disability benefits

A Vietnam veteran, long denied disability benefits, is suing the Veterans Affairs Department to speed up the compensation appeals process. It is a move that could potentially affect the outcomes of thousands of cases stuck in administrative limbo.

The suit, filed by Marine vet Conley Monk, Jr in the US Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, was brought against the Secretary of Veteran Affairs and asks the VA to promptly decide disability compensation appeals that have been pending for more than a year.

“I want to get the resolution not only for myself, but for veterans undergoing a similar problem,” Monk said.
