Additional Notes

Disclosure is not required when prohibited by law or a court order.

Individual names have been redacted on this website to comply with the Privacy Act. The brief description of facts that gave rise to the claim often contains personally identifiable information (PII) that cannot be disclosed under the Privacy Act. Consequently, the case citation code and citation code description have been substituted for the brief description of facts, as they do not contain PII, and provide more consistent information about the reason for the claim.
