The Federal Tort Claims Act (“FTCA”) provides that a tort claim against the United States is “forever barred” unless two deadlines are met:  (1) a claim must be presented to the appropriate federal agency for administrative review within two years after the claim accrues, and (2) if the agency denies the claim, suit must be filed in federal court within six months of the denial.  28 U.S.C. § 2401(b).  In U.S. v. Wong, 135 S. Ct. 1625 (2015) (No. 13-1074), the Supreme Court held that the time limitations under the FTCA were not jurisdictional and were subject to equitable tolling.  The Court reasoned that statutory time bars, even if mandatory and emphatic, are not jurisdictional unless Congress provides a clear statement to that effect.  The Court concluded that Congress did not do so in the FTCA, which speaks only of a claim’s timeliness but does not refer to the jurisdiction of the district courts or address those courts’ authority to hear untimely suits.  Thus, the FTCA deadline provisions read like “ordinary, run-of-the-mill statute of limitations,” which are subject to equitable tolling.
