Judge Orders Navy to Review the Medical Discharges of at Least 3,700 Sailors and Marines

Recommended Posts

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.
