CDA's Statute of Limitation Not Jurisdictional

Aug.12.2010

In Menominee Indian Tribe v U.S., the DC Circuit holds, contrary to some BCA and CFC decisions, that the six-year statute of limitation on contractor claims of the Contract Disputes Act is not jurisdictional, but rather "a claims-processing rule." As a result, instead of filing late being an absolute bar, the court remands the case for the district court to determine whether equitable tolling should be applied in the particular circumstances.
