Cordatis obtains potentially precedent setting decision for disabled veterans

In 2019, partner Josh Schnell filed a complaint in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims seeking a medical discharge for a  Navy Veteran who incurred severe injuries serving our country. In a recent decision that should benefit all service-members, the Court held that our client is entitled to a medical discharge if he was unfit for duty (e.g., could not do his job) or his continued service “presented a decided medical risk to his health.”  This decision is significant because it’s the first time the Court has held that veterans are entitled to a medical discharge if their continued services will harm their health.
