This morning the Federal Circuit issued one precedential opinion in a government contract case. Here is the introduction to the opinion.

Eskridge & Associates v. United States (Precedential)

Appellant Eskridge & Associates (“Eskridge”) filed a bid protest in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, protesting the award of a U.S. Department of the Army (“Army”) contract to a competitor. Following Eskridge’s motion for judgment on the administrative record, the Court of Federal Claims concluded that Eskridge lacked standing, as it was not an interested party pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1491, and dismissed the protest. See Eskridge & Assocs. v. United States, 142 Fed. Cl. 410, 425 (2019) (Opinion and Order); Judgment, Eskridge & Assocs. v. United States, No. 18-2001 (Fed. Cl. Mar. 19, 2019), ECF No. 26.

Eskridge appeals. We have jurisdiction pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1295(a)(3). We affirm.
