WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Veterans Claims U.S. Court of Appeals on July 2 affirmed a ruling by the Board of Veterans Appeals that denied a former member of the U.S. Navy benefits related to lung cancer that he claimed was caused by exposure to Agent Orange on grounds that the evidence did not support the veteran's claim (Kenneth R. Byrne v. Sloan D. Gibson, No. 13-2150, Vet. Clms.; 2014 U.S. App. Vet. Claims LEXIS 1162).
