Bright et al. v. United States

Opposition to Government's Petition for Rehearing and Rehearing En Banc


Earlier this year, the U.S. Court of Appeals held that the statute of limitations in a class-action takings case was tolled by the filing of the complaint. 603 F.3d 1273 (Fed. Cir. 2010). The Federal Circuit thus reversed the trial court's decision holding that the statute of limitations was not tolled until the class was certified and the individual class member actually opted into the class. The Government has now filed a petition to review and review en banc of the Federal Circuit's reversal. This brief explains why the Federal Circuit should deny rehearing.
