U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims: Retroactive Reimbursement of Professional Liability Insurance Costs, B-300866, May 30, 2003
B-300866, May 30, 2003
Sec. 7287 was not explicitly made retroactive. DECISION This is in response to a request for an advance decision pursuant to 31 U.S.C. We find that the effective date of the authority to pay the premium involved is not earlier than December 27. Nor does the legislative history clearly indicate that such entitlement was meant to be retroactive. BACKGROUND The CAVC was established by Congress under Article I of the Constitution as an independent tribunal not subject to the control of the President or the Administrative Office of the U.S. Is permitted to develop its own personnel and job classification system for its judicial and nonjudicial personnel. 38 U.S.C. There have been various times that the CAVC has requested and Congress has enacted various gap-filling statutory provisions.
