Robie v Derwinski

DESIGNATED FOR PUBLICATION

UNITED STATES COURT OF VETERANS APPEALS

No. 89-42 

RICKY L. ROBIE, Appellant,

v.

EDWARD J. DERWINSKI, Secretary of Veterans Affairs, Appellee. 

Before NEBEKER, Chief Judge, and FARLEY and HOLDAWAY,   Associate Judges. 

ORDER

On consideration of appellant’s motion for leave to file a correction to a statement made during oral argument and of appellant’s representation that the motion is not opposed by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs, it is ORDERED that appellant’s motion for leave to file is granted. The Court cautions, however, that it views with disfavor any post hearing submissions not expressly directed, permitted, or requested by a panel. See Smith v. Derwinski, U.S. Vet. App. No. 90-926 (order designated for publication, issued Sept. 27, 1991) (unsolicited submission of “Errata” constitutes argument not permissible at post-hearing stage of proceedings, absent exceptional circumstances). If a party believes it necessary to correct a statement of fact or law after a case has been submitted, the correction should be stated simply and without additional argument. 

DATED: October 4, 1991 PER CURIAM.
