A few months ago, I appeared in front of the VA Judge [Travelling Appeal Board] at the local VRO. Today, I sent an eMail to the BVA Ombudsman inquiring about the status of my appeal case, and here is their reply "I see were you had a Travel Board Hearing in August. Your case is still with that Regional Office. Case has not been transferred to the board." Can any one help me as to what this really means? I don't understand how I could have presented my claim before the BVA Judge, even though my case hasn't been transferred to the BVA yet! Before I go and spend a full day travelling and waiting to see my DAV VSO, is there anything I should be worried about, or can I do anything from home? Additional information- Back in April 2008, I had my VA C&P exam. The C&P REPORT confirmed my doctor's NEXUS that my heart problems were 'MORE LIKELY THAN NOT' related to . . . etc. The C&P REPORT assigned me with a METS 2 [100%]. However, the Regional Office decided to schedule me an appointment to appear before the Travelling Appeals Board, [Form 9 filed October 2006] instead of deciding the claim themselves, even though they had the C&P Exam REPORT with the 'METS 2', months before scheduling me for the Travel Appeal Board. To me, it just doesn't add up. And yes, the Judge had my whole file in front of him!!
