(February 11, 2016, 3:00 PM EST) -- WASHINGTON, D.C. — A federal judge in the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims on Feb. 1 vacated and remanded a ruling that denied benefits to a veteran who claims he contracted cancer as a result of exposure to Agent Orange. The judge said that the Board of Veterans Affairs failed to properly examine all avenues of possible exposure (Frank V. Bambino v. Robert A. McDonald, No. 14-2854, U.S. App., Vet.
