11/14/2023 Open Document Opinion In sum, 38 C.F.R. § 14.636(c)(2)(ii) is invalid because it contravenes the plain and ordinary meaning of 38 U.S.C. § 5904(c)(1), which permits paid representation once a claimant receives notice of the AOJ's "initial decision . . . with respect to the case." Because the Board relied on the invalid regulation in reaching its August 2021 decision, we REVERSE its decision that appellant is not entitled to a fee under the terms of the regulation that purports to implement section 5904(c)(1). We REMAND this matter for the Board to address appellant's fee request anew, including under the terms of the fee agreement itself as appropriate, without regard to the now invalidated § 14.636(c)(2)(ii).
