United States v. Bormes  - Post-Argument SCOTUScast - MP3
Running Time: 00:09:55

Philip PucilloOn October 2, 2012 the Supreme Court heard oral argument in United States v. Bormes.  The question in this case is whether the Little Tucker Act waives the sovereign immunity of the United States in actions under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), meaning the United States could be sued by a private individual for violating FCRA and ordered to pay money damages.

To discuss the case, we have Phil Pucillo, who is a Lecturer in Law at Michigan State University College of Law.
