CASE ENTRY

Daniel v. United States

Navy Lieutenant dies of complications from “low-risk” childbirth in Bremerton, Wash. naval hospital. Negligence? We don’t like it, says the Ninth Circuit, but the gov’t is immune from suit where a service member’s injuries are “incident to military service.” The Supreme Court should carve out an exception for injuries such as this.
