Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims judgment is affirmed where the court properly held that plaintiff's finality claim was an impermissible freestanding challenge to the finality of a prior regional office decision, as the law does not recognize a freestanding finality claim filed after the period for direct appeal has expired.
