Will the “The Veterans Appeals Improvement and Modernization Act of 2017” impact the workload of the Federal Circuit? « 717 Madison Place

Will the “The Veterans Appeals Improvement and Modernization Act of 2017” impact the workload of the Federal Circuit?

The “Veterans Appeals Improvement and Modernization Act of 2017” was signed into law earlier this week.  The goal of the legislation is to streamline the appeal process for veterans to the Department of Veterans Affairs.  [Link]  Appeals from the Board of Veterans Affairs are heard by the US Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (CAVC).  Appeals from the CAVC are heard by — you guessed it — the Federal Circuit. With the Federal Circuit already reeling from an increase in AIA appeals, we will have to wait and see how this new law further affects the workload of the Federal Circuit.
