Don’t hold us to time limits for suing, the nation’s at war

Last year I wrote a piece for Jurist on the Wartime Suspension of Limitations Act (WSLA). Now the False Claims Act case of Kellogg Brown & Root Services, Inc. v. United States ex rel. Carter is before the Supreme Court, which heard oral argument on Tuesday. [transcript; Ronald Mann/SCOTUSBlog; WSJ editorial; Courthouse News; earlier here and here]

  • I call BS.

    The nation is not at war, and should not be considered at war. Congress has not declared war, therefore, no war. The AUMF is not a declaration of war.

    That said, I feel nothing but schadenfreude. KBR has profited immensely from the country being “at war.” I think it simple karma that they would be held accountable in this instance.
