Decided May 7, 1951*

341 U.S. 319


A private motor carrier sued in the Court of Claims to recover just compensation for an alleged temporary taking of its property and business by the United States under Executive Order No. 9462. While the case was pending, the Motor Carrier Claims Commission Act was enacted, and the motor carrier timely filed its claim with the Commission before the Court of Claims entered judgment.

Held: this deprived the Court of Claims of jurisdiction to enter judgment in the case. Pp. 341 U. S. 319-320.

115 Ct.Cl. 733, 88 F.Supp. 278, vacated and remanded.
