(United States Federal Circuit) – The Court of Appeals affirmed the grant of judgement for the government on plaintiff claims of statutory and contract claims, under the reasoning in Moda Health Plan, Inc. v. US, No. 17-1994. Because plaintiffs contract claim fails there can be no takings claim to the extent it relies on a contract. The court reasoned that no statutory obligation to pay money can create a property interest within the meaning of the Takings Clause.
