 The continuing claims doctrine operates to save parties who have pled a series of distinct events-each of which gives rise to a separate cause of action-as a single continuing event. In such cases, the continuing claims doctrine operates to save later arising claims even if the statute of limitations has lapsed for earlier events. 74 Fed. Cl. 692, 695-96 (2006).
