The Court certified a class in this civil action (the “Settlement Class”) defined as follows:
The Department of the Navy (“Navy”) has agreed to review the discharge of thousands of Veterans affected by post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), military sexual trauma (MST), and other behavioral or mental health conditions. The Navy has also agreed to change some of its administrative procedures for individuals who apply in the future to have their discharge statuses upgraded. This agreement follows a sentiment reached in the nationwide class action lawsuit Manker v. Del Toro, 3:18-cv-000372-CSH. A federal court preliminarily approved the agreement on 12 October 2021.
