SCOTUS-DEADLINE
(2008-01-09)
(wgvu) - THE SUPREME COURT HAS IMPOSED A SIX-YEAR
DEADLINE FOR SUING THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IN PROPERTY DISPUTES.
THE 7-2 DECISION UPHOLDS A FEDERAL APPEALS COURT RULING AGAINST
A MICHIGAN SAND AND GRAVEL COMPANY.
THE LAPEER COUNTY COMPANY WAS SEEKING COMPENSATION FOR THE LOSS
OF SOME OF THE LAND IT HAD LEASED FROM THE PROPERTY OWNERS.
A FEDERAL APPEALS COURT RULED THAT IT HAD NO JURISDICTION TO
HEAR THE CASE BECAUSE THE COMPANY HAD WAITED LONGER THAN SIX YEARS
TO SUE.
