Flordeliza A. Hawkins filed suit in the United States Court of Federal Claims, alleging violations of her constitutional and civil rights with regard to eviction from her home in 2013 after foreclosure proceedings by her mortgagee, SunTrust Bank.

We affirm the Court of Federal Claims’ dismissal for lack of subject matter jurisdiction.
