The Senior Judges in the US Court of Federal Claims
For more than 160 y ears, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, along with its predecessor, the U.S. Court of Claims, has acted as "The People's Court," 1 sometimes even referred to as the "keeper of the nation's conscience. "2 As Abraham Lincoln stated in his Annual Message to Congress in 1861, "it is as much the duty of government to render prompt justice against itself in favor of citizens, as it is to administer the same between private individuals." While some may conflate the Court of Federal Claims with small claims courts across the country, there is nothing small about the Court of Federal Claims.
