At Liberty Nation, we believe you should have all the facts without the spin. As such, we republish the Supreme Court document here in full.
In 1950, the Supreme Court established the “Feres doctrine”, ruling that under the Federal Tort Claims Act, members of the armed forces cannot sue the federal government for injuries sustained on active duty. Justice Clarence Thomas has repeatedly dissented from cases that rely on the doctrine, and he does so again here. That his colleagues declined to join him likely means the doctrine will stand without legislative attention, something all the Justices would seem to welcome.
