Excerpt
Excerpt: The Federal Tort Claims Act is the product of an over thirty year debate regarding the responsibility of the United States to victims of its torts.1 This debate resulted in a limited waiver of sovereign immunity for tort liability.2 By allowing claims against the government, the FTCA eliminated thousands of requests to Congress for private legislative relief arising out of government torts. Chapter 4 of Army Regulation 27-203 implements the FTCA for the Department of the Army. Under the FTCA, the United States is liable for the acts of its employees ?in the same manner and to the same extent as a private individual under like circumstances.?4 Subject to certain exceptions and limitations, the FTCA provides for the payment of money damages, for injury or loss of either real or personal property or for personal injury or death, caused by a wrongful or negligent act or omission, of an employee of the United States, acting within the scope of employment, where the United States, if a private person, would be liable, according to the law of the place where the act or omission occurred.
