A Stieberger claim is a “pipeline” case if, as of the date of request for Stieberger review, either:
an administrative or judicial review had been requested on the Stieberger claim but no determination or decision had been issued on that request, or;
a request for such an administrative or judicial review would still have been timely
These cases will be processed by OHA. Favorable decisions will be processed under
all normal claims processing rules. The special Stieberger rules in this transmittal do not apply.
