SCOTUS Decides Court of Federal Claims Statute of Limitations Case

Yesterday the Supreme Court decided John R. Sand & Gravel Co. v. United States, No. 06-1164, in which it held that the special statute of limitations governing the Court of Federal Claims requires that court to consider on its own initiative the timeliness of a suit filed in the claims court, even where the federal government has waived the issue.
