Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In a Federal Tort Claims Act action by a railroad against the government based on the derailment of a train, judgment for plaintiff is reversed where: 1) the Tucker Act deprived the district court of jurisdiction over plaintiff's negligent breach of contract claim because it was a contract claim under the exclusive jurisdiction of the Court of Federal Claims; and 2) plaintiff's negligent inspection and maintenance claim was barred by the exculpatory clause of the parties' agreement, which did not violate Oklahoma public policy.
