Mr. Harvey, a Vietnam-era veteran, has won his case in the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims[ full decision at Harvey v. Shinseki], which ordered “the Department of Veterans Affairs to pay out his court-ordered claim in a more timely manner.” “But nothing happened for 18 months , which the court called “a parade of administrative miseries,” therefore the court “ordered the VA to pay his legal costs and a $20,000 sanction for civil contempt, noncompliance and lack of reasonable diligence. Harvey was represented by Katrina Eagle, of Finklestein & Partners law firm.”
