“The National Veterans Legal Services Program and their pro bono co-counsel, Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, hit a homerun with a historic class action lawsuit settlement for disabled veterans who served in Afghanistan and Iraq.” The lawsuit, filed in 2008, charged that the military services violated the law by failing to assign a 50 percent disability rating to more than a thousand troops who were medically discharged because of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) between 2003 and 2008, now those veterans will finally receive the benefits to which they are legally entitled but had been denied.
