By The Canadian Press - It's a victory for Canadian military veterans in the battlefield of the courts.
The vets with disabilities have been awarded a $38.6-million settlement in a lawsuit with Ottawa.
The veterans were originally awarded $887.8million over the long-standing federal practice of clawing back the military pensions of injured soldiers. The clawback equalled their disability payments.
The latest amount approved was for a settlement on the cost-of-living provisions in that agreement.
The lawyers for the veterans found a miscalculation in the way the federal government determined the cost of living allowance for the veterans.
The lawsuit started with 8,000 people, but the new settlement includes another 6,000 veterans.
