In a dispute involving a veteran's service-connected disability claim, Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims judgment is reversed where: 1) a veteran alleging a service-connected disability has a due process right to have his claim for veteran's disability benefits decided according to fundamentally fair procedures; and 2) plaintiff's due process right to a fair hearing was violated by the consideration of tainted medical evidence.
