A lawsuit in Kentucky could force the Veterans Affairs Department to make radical changes to its health care system. A Marine, Cameron Anestis, killed himself after returning from Iraq. His family says he sought a mental health evaluation and treatment at two VA facilities but was turned away. A federal appeals court recently said his wife could sue the VA for negligence. Rob Watkins, a former Air Force lawyer and Veterans Affairs policy analyst now an associate attorney at Tully Rinckey, discussed the case with Federal Drive host Emily Kopp.
