Greetings. On behalf of the United States Court of Federal Claims, welcome to our website.

We are pleased to welcome spring in the District of Columbia and here at the court as we celebrate both new beginnings and this court's founding principles.

New beginnings: we continue to welcome Judge Lydia Kay Griggsby to the court family. Judge Griggsby joined the court at the beginning of the year after working with the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary in various positions since 2004. Judge Griggsby has brought to the bench an extensive knowledge of the federal court system and judiciary policy. Since her confirmation on January 5, 2015, we have enjoyed getting to know her and supporting her transition to the bench. We are thrilled to have her on board.

We are also thrilled to celebrate founding principles with two upcoming events in support of Law Day 2015, for which the American Bar Association has established the theme of "Magna Carta: Symbol of Freedom Under Law." Read more.
