Recommendation 2012-6 – The Need to Reform 28 U.S.C. § 1500 urges Congress to repeal Section 1500, which divests the U.S. Court of Federal Claims of jurisdiction when a plaintiff has claims against the government based on substantially the same operative facts pending in another court, and replace it with a provision that would create a presumption that in such circumstances, later-filed actions would be stayed.
Recommendation 2013-4 – Administrative Record in Informal Rulemaking offers best practices for agencies in the compilation, preservation, and certification of records in informal rulemaking, and it supports the judicial presumption of regularity for agency administrative records except in certain limited circumstances.
