The Veterans Benefits Act of 2010 (PL 111-275, 124 Stat 2864) was signed into law on October 14, 2010. It includes an important new provision for service members who have been harmed by a violation of the federal Service Members Civil Relief Act.
The new provision allows a Court to award the costs of litigation and reasonable attorney fees if you prevail in Court on your case.
The new provision should make it easier for you to find a private attorney willing to represent you on a SCRA claim, if you have a good case.
