What law covers 'breach of contract' by the U.S Government?

Are there any successful cases filed against the U.S. Government using non-payment as a basis for the assertion of contract breach?

Attorney Arcadier : Tucker Act 28 U.S.C. §1491. This is the law that allows individuals and companies to sue u.s. government for breach of contract. And yes, these claims are successful all the time. See famous u.s. s. ct. case, 1996, winstar v. u.s. government.

Attorney Arcadier : using I do not know where you can get that free, other than going to your local law library.

I just needed to look at the one chapter which seemed to be available free with an ID at the site mentioned, but the process of getting an ID was not obvious, though I have an account.


Nevertheless, thank you for your assistance.
