The Tenth Circuit on Thursday issued one published opinion and nine unpublished opinions.
In Constien v. United States, the Court affirmed the district court’s grant of summary judgment in favor of the government. Petitioner brought suit against the United States Department of Education, the Student Loan Association, and four Department of Education officials, claiming that the government had reduced her Social Security Disability checks to make payments on her student loans. She sought relief in the amount of 34 trillion dollars. The Court agreed with the district court that Petitioner failed to properly serve any defendants. Service must be mailed by a person who is not a party to the action, and must be effected within 120 days of the complaint’s filing.
