Tort Liability of Members of the Armed Forces


Members of the armed forces are generally immune from liability for damages to another person or to the other person’s property as long as the members were acting within the scope of their employment or their official duties and as long as the members were following a lawful command. The immunity applies to the members who were issuing the lawful command and to the members who were obeying the lawful command.
