The Spectacular History of the Court of Claims

The Spectacular History of the Court of Claims

seal-color125

It really is quite a spectacle:

“Over the course of the court’s history, it went from being an:

advisory court that did not do enough to relieve Congress of its burdens (1855)

to being an Article III Court (1863)

to being ruled an Article I court (1864-5),

to being altered to be an Article III Court again (1866),

to being impliedly an Article III court (1911),

to having its judges declared to be Article III in dicta (1925),

to being ruled an Article I court (1929),

to having its judges declared to be Article I judges (1933),

to having Congress declare it to be an Article III Court (1953),

to having the Supreme Court declare it Article III (1962),

to being split into Article III Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (appellate) and the Article I United States Claim Court (trial) (1982),

to finally being renamed the United States Court of Federal Claims where it remains today as an Article I Court of the United States (1992).”
