Court may reconsider cases dismissed between July 2008 and December 2011

If you filed an appeal with the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims between July 24, 2008, and December 20, 2011, and your appeal was dismissed because it was filed late (i.e., more than 120 days after the Board of Veterans’ Appeals denied your claim), you may be able to get the Court to reconsider its dismissal, as long as you have good cause for the late filing.  See Bove v. Shinseki, No. 08-1468, 2011 WL 6364587 (per curiam order Dec. 20, 2011), available at
