BP Am. Prod. Co. v. Burton, 05-669

The 6-year statute of limitations for government contract actions, as provided in 28 U.S.C. section 2415(a), applies only to court actions, not to the administrative payment orders issued by the Department of the Interior's Minerals Management Service for the purpose of assessing royalty underpayments on oil and gas leases.
