Reed Island-MLC, Inc. v. United States
Citation: 35 ELR 20155
No. No. 04-1130L, (Fed. Cl., 07/22/2005)
The court holds that the Tucker Act's statute of limitations does not bar a development company's claim that U.S. Marine Corps munitions-handling operations at Blount Island, Florida, resulted in a temporary taking of the company's property without just compensation. The statute of limitations began to run on the company's claim only when the Marine Corps confirmed in a January 2001 letter that the munitions-handling operations at Blount Island no longer extended over the company's property. The company's claim therefore falls within the six-year statute of limitations.
