Yesterday, the Supreme Court issued a Per Curium opinion in Ford Motor Company v. United States which vacated and remanded a Sixth Circuit ruling that denied overpayment interest to Ford. In its brief in opposition to the certiorari petition, the government claimed that the Sixth Circuit did not have jurisdiction over the case, but rather that jurisdiction was limited to the Court of Federal Claims under the Tucker Act. The Supreme Court remanded the case back to the Sixth Circuit to address the jurisdictional question.
In New York Life Insurance Co. v. United States,118 F.3d 1553 (Fed. Cir. 1997), Steptoe & Johnson, LLP successfully sued for the return of a deposit and one of the issues in the case involved the jurisdiction of the Court of Federal Claims under the Tucker Act.
