Supreme Court hears oral argument regarding Federal Torts Claims Action

Over at the Supreme Court of the US blog (SCOTUS), Howard Wasserman, reports that a couple of days ago, "a subdued Court spent two hours hearing oral arguments in United States v. Wong and United States v. June, considering whether the limitations periods under the Federal Tort Claims Act are jurisdictional or subject to equitable tolling. The Justices asked relatively few questions, allowing all four attorneys to speak uninterrupted for long stretches and to provide lengthy answers to many questions."  Go here and here for his complete review of the case and links to the relevant documents. You can listen to the audio of the oral arguments here and here.
