Yesterday, the Supreme Court granted certiorari in U.S. ex rel. Carter v. Haliburton Co., 710 F.3d 171 (4th Cir. 2013).
Carter, a False Claims Act (FCA) case, involves the application of the Wartime Suspension of Limitations Act (WSLA). The statute of limitations under the FCA is six years, but the WSLA suspends statutes of limitations for fraud against the federal government when the United States is at war. Back in November 2013, the Supreme Court sought the views of the Solicitor General on the case. The Solicitor General recommended that the Court deny the writ of certiorari. However, at least four members of the Court obviously felt that the Carter decision merits consideration.
