US Court of Federal Claims

The U.S. Court of Federal Claims is a United States federal court that hears claims for money damages in excess of $10,000 against the federal government. These claims for damages may arise from governmental actions in violation of the U.S. Constitution, federal statutes, federal regulations, or a government contract. Unlike federal district courts, the Court of Federal Claims has jurisdiction over disputes wherever they occur in the country.

Examples of claims against the government that may be brought in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims include breach of contract by the federal government, taking of property claims under the 5th Amendment, protests regarding contract bidding procedures on government projects, and certain breach of trust claims by Indian tribes. Judgments rendered by the U.S. Court of Federal Claims can be appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
