What if My Case Was Denied at Court?

What if My Case Was Denied at Court?

  • Even if the Judge Denies your Case, you may file an Appeal
  • Your case will be electronically reviewed in Virginia
  • The standard of Analysis for overturning a Judge’s Decision is very high
  • There must be clear evidence that the Judge made an Incorrect Decision, or a Procedural Mistake
  • The Appeal’s Council may review the case, notice errors, and have the case returned to the same Judge for a new Hearing
  • It may be requested that a Medical Expert attend the hearing, or that there be further Testimony to clarify certain issues
  • If the Judge ignores the reasons that contribute to your unemployed status, the case may be sent back for further analysis
  • The Judge will need a very good reason for rejecting your Source Statement
  • Overall, you will lose your case if you do not file an Appeal within 60 days of the Judge’s Denial
  • In Connecticut, it will take about a year to find out of the Appeal’s Council will send your case for another Hearing
