Statute of Limitations in Qui Tam actons addressed by Supremes

The Supreme Court has issued its final employment-law related opinion of the term. The majority opinion (authored by Justice Thomas) held that the qui tam retaliation cause of action will not be governed by the six-year statute of limitations for normal qui tam actions. Instead, the Court instructs that lower court's are to utilize the cause of action from the most analogous cause of action for the state in which they sit. I can think of a few different possiblities for Texas (whistle blower statute - 90 days, standard tort SoL - 2 years).

As I am out of town this week for the NELA convention, I have not been able to thoroughly review the decision or give it any more than a cursory treatment here today. Suggest you take a look at Mike Fox's write up at his excellent blog here.
