Andersen v. HUD, No. 11-3323 (8th Cir. 2012)Annotate this Case
HUD debarred plaintiff from obtaining federal government contracts in 1990 after he failed to make required payments to the agency. Twenty years after HUD had sent him notice of debarment, plaintiff brought this action seeking declaratory and injunctive relief against its enforcement. The court held that the district court properly concluded that plaintiff's claim accrued in 1990; that his claim was time-barred; and that equitable tolling of the limitations period was unavailable to such a "garden variety claim of excusable neglect."
