Court of Federal Claims Litigation

Print Friendly

 

The U.S. Court of Federal Claims is a United States federal court that hears monetary claims in excess of $10,000 against the federal government. Such claims for damages may arise from the U.S. Constitution, federal statutes, executive regulations, or a contract with the federal government. Unlike the majority of other courts, the Court of Federal Claims has jurisdiction over disputes wherever they occur in the country.

Examples of claims against the government that may be brought in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims include breach of contract by the federal government, taking of property claims under the 5th Amendment, protests regarding contract bidding procedures on government projects, and certain breach of trust claims by Indian tribes. Judgments rendered by the U.S. Court of Federal Claims can be appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

The U.S. Court of Federal Claims has been referred to as the “keeper of the nation’s conscience” and “the People’s Court.” Marzulla Law takes our role in this process seriously. There is no claim too complex and no legal problem too challenging for us to tackle.
