Welcome from the Honorable Patricia E. Campbell-Smith, Chief Judge

Greetings. On behalf of the United States Court of Federal Claims, welcome to our website.

It is with sadness that we at the court begin to wind down the summer. On Thursday, August 27, 2015 our friend and colleague Judge Francis M. Allegra lost his battle with brain cancer. Each of us at the court is thankful for the the honor and privilege of getting to know and to work with Judge Allegra. Our sincerest sympathies are extended to his family and chambers staff. To mark the court's mourning for Judge Allegra, the court's flag will fly at half-staff until sundown on Saturday, September 12, 2015.

For those members of the bar who are interested in reaching out to Judge Allegra's family with condolences and fond memories, please click here for more information.

Best wishes for health and happiness, and thank you for your interest in the United States Court of Federal Claims.
