United States v. Lindsay, 346 U.S. 568 (1954)

United States v. Lindsay

No. 94

Argued December 1-2, 1953

Decided January 18, 1954

346 U.S. 568


Section 4(c) of the Commodity Credit Corporation Charter Act of June 29, 1948, as amended, 15 U.S.C. § 714b(c), bars suits by or against the Corporation unless brought "within six years after the right accrued on which suit is brought." The Government sued these private parties in 1952 to recover on a claim growing out of the alleged delivery of damaged wool to the Corporation in 1945.

Held: The Government's claim "accrued" on the date a right to sue came into existence, rather than on the date the Act became effective, and the suit is barred. Pp. 346 U. S. 568-571.

202 F.2d 239 affirmed.
