The Supreme Court in Scarborough v. Principi
held that a timely application for fees under the Equal Access to Justice Act, 28 U.S.C. § 2412(d), may be amended after the 30-day filing period has run to cure an initial failure to allege that the government's position in the underlying litigation lacked substantial justification. Click here
