Resource Investments, Inc. v. United States

Petition for certiorari denied on June 27, 2016
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
15-802 Fed. Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2015

Issue: (1) Whether the Federal Circuit impermissibly broadened the scope of 28 U.S.C. § 1500's jurisdictional bar and deviated from settled precedent when it construed this Court's straightforward “substantially the same operative facts” standard, United States v. Tohono O'odham Nation, to mean “arising out of the same transaction”; and (2) whether, in the absence of clear congressional intent to bar constitutional claims, Section 1500 should be construed to preclude Fifth Amendment takings claims and, if so, whether such an interpretation would be unconstitutional.
