Why military service members can’t sue their employer

Military servicemembers don’t have the legal recourse civilians do for cases of malpractice, negligence and even sexual assault. Vanity Fair contributing editor Maximillian Potter joins guest host John McCaa to discuss a ruling called the Feres Doctrine, which bars members of the military from suing the government, and the fallout that’s meant for severely injured service people. His articles are “It’s About Truth and Accountability’: The Military Families Fighting the Feres Doctrine,” and “The Feres Doctrine: The Fight to End a Systemic Miscarriage of Military Justice.”
