Arctic Slope Native Ass'n, Ltd. v. Sebelius, No. 08-1532

In plaintiffs' Contract Disputes Act (CDA) claims against the Indian Health Service (IHS), the Civilian Board of Contract Appeals' dismissal of several of plaintiffs' contract claims is affirmed in part and reversed in part as the six-year presentment period is subject to equitable tolling under section 605(a) of the CDA, but the class action tolling does not apply to the claims at issue.
