By FindLaw Staff on August 13, 2009 4:44 PM

Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims judgment denying claim for service connection for an acquired psychiatric disorder is affirmed where: 1) the regional office appropriately issued a supplemental statement of the case on remand in denying plaintiff's claim for service connection; 2) the Board did not exceed its jurisdiction by affirming that ruling; and 3) there was no merit to plaintiff's claim that the notice he received was inadequate under 38 U.S.C. sec. 5104(a) or 38 C.F.R. sec. 3.103(b)(1).
