United States Supreme Court Certiorari Granted

Opinions Filed in January 2023

Arellano v. McDonough

Statutes of limitation are presumed to be subject to equitable tolling, but this presumption shifts if inconsistent with the statutory design. Irwin v. Department of Veterans Affairs, 498 U. S. 89, 95–96 (1990); John R. Sand & Gravel Co. v. United States, 552 U. S. 130, 137–138 (2008). It is inconsistent with the comprehensive statutory scheme to subject this narrow exception to equitable tolling. See 38 U. S. C. §§ 5110(a)(1), (b)(1).
