Sec. 1558. Remedy in cases involving selection boards

    ‘(a) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the remedies prescribed by this section shall be the sole and exclusive remedies available to a person challenging for any reason the action or recommendation of a selection board.

    ‘(b) A person challenging for any reason the action or recommendation of a selection board, shall not be entitled to relief in any judicial proceeding unless he has first been considered by a special board under this section, or has been denied such consideration by the Secretary concerned. A decision by the Secretary concerned to deny such consideration shall be subject to judicial review only for procedural error or on the basis that such decision is arbitrary, capricious or otherwise contrary to law. A recommendation by a special board or a decision resulting from such recommendation shall be subject to judicial review only for procedural error or on the basis that such decision is contrary to law.

    ‘(c) If consideration by a special board results in a decision favorable to a person considered thereby, the Secretary concerned may correct such person’s military records to reflect that favorable decision, retroactive to the effective date of the action of the original selection board. In effecting such correction, the Secretary shall ensure that a person who, as a result of consideration by a special board, becomes entitled to retention on or restoration to active duty or

active status in a reserve component, shall--

      ‘(1) with his consent, be retroactively and prospectively restored to the same status, rights and entitlements (less appropriate offsets against back pay and allowances) in his armed force as he would have had if he had not been selected to be separated, retired or transferred to the retired reserve or to inactive status in a reserve component as a result of the recommendation of the original selection board, provided that nothing herein shall be construed to permit the retention of such person on active duty or in an active status in a reserve component beyond the date on which he would have been separated, retired or transferred to the retired reserve or to inactive status in a reserve component if he had not been selected to be separated, retired or transferred to the retired reserve or to inactive status in a reserve component as a result of the recommendation of the original selection board; or

      ‘(2) if he does not consent to such restoration, receive back pay and allowances (less appropriate offsets) and service credit from the date of his separation, retirement or transfer to the retired reserve or to inactive status in a reserve component until the earlier of (A) the date he would have been restored under clause (1) of this subsection, as determined by the Secretary concerned, or (B) the date on which he would have been separated, retired or transferred to the retired reserve or to inactive status in a reserve component if he had not been selected to be separated, retired or transferred to the retired reserve or to inactive status in a reserve component as a result of the recommendation of the original selection board.

    ‘(d) If consideration by a special board results in a decision unfavorable to a person considered thereby, such decision shall be deemed to confirm the action of the original selection board with respect to that person, retroactive to the effective date of such action of the original selection board.

    ‘(e) The Secretary concerned may prescribe regulations to implement this section. Such regulations may prescribe the circumstances under which the consideration may be provided under this section, including the circumstances under which such consideration is contingent upon application for such consideration, and time limits within which a person must make such application in order to receive such consideration. Such regulations issued by the Secretary of a Military Department must be approved by the Secretary of Defense.

A board for correction of military or naval records convened under section 1552 of this title is a special board if so designated by the Secretary concerned.

      ‘(2) ‘Selection board’ means a selection board convened under section 573, 580, 580a, 581, 611, 637, 638, 638a, 14101, 14701, 14704 or 14705 of this title, and any other board (except a special board or a board convened under section 1552 of this title) convened by the Secretary concerned under any authority to recommend persons for appointment, enlistment, reenlistment, assignment, promotion or retention in the armed forces; or for separation, retirement or transfer to inactive status in a reserve component for the purpose of reducing the number of persons serving in the armed forces. However, for the purposes of this section, ‘selection board’ does not include a promotion selection board convened under sections 573(a), 611(a), or 14101(a) of this title.
