More than 3,770 sailors and Marines who were medically discharged between Sept. 12, 2016, and June 11, 2018, may be eligible for medical retirement from the Defense Department under a federal judge's ruling last week in Washington, D.C.
U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth ruled Sept. 29 that a policy used by the Navy to help expedite its disability evaluation system was unlawful and those who were medically discharged, rather than retired, may be eligible for a review of their cases.
