Tamara LindaeyCoats Rose Associate, Tamara J. Lindsey, discusses the impending Supreme Court ruling that started with bid protests lodged by a different service-disabled veteran-owned small business (“SDVOSB”).

On February 22, 2016, the United States Supreme Court heard oral argument in the ongoing dispute between Kingdomware Technologies, Inc. (“Kingdomware”) and the United States.  That argument marked the apex of a dispute that commenced five years ago over a braising pan and an electric griddle, but which has since transformed into a controversy with billions of dollars in federal contracting funds hanging in the balance.
