Starrett v. United States (Nonprecedential)
William Starrett, Jr., sued the United States in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims (Claims Court), asserting three counts of breach of contract and seeking approximately 11 trillion dollars in damages. In his complaint, Mr. Starrett alleged that he has been forced “[a]gainst his protests” to “advise” in the federal government’s alleged remote monitoring of civilians and that he has been subjected to “remote neural monitoring.” Claims Ct. Dkt. No. 8 ¶¶ 3– 7, 28–29, 31, 40. The Claims Court dismissed the complaint for lack of subject-matter jurisdiction. Starrett v. United States, No. 21-cv-1168, 2021 WL 7627745 (Fed. Cl. Sept. 10, 2021); Claims Ct. Dkt. No. 19. We affirm.
