White-Squire v. U.S. Postal Serv., No. 09-1577

By FindLaw Staff on January 28, 2010 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In plaintiff's suit against the USPS arising from an automobile collision with a USPS employee, dismissal of the claim is affirmed as a claimant under the Federal Tort Claims Act, whose damages continue to accrue, must nevertheless submit a claim to the appropriate agency containing a "sum certain" for damages prior to filing suit because the sum certain requirement is jurisdictional.
