Tort/Negligence – FTCA – Assault – Pentagon Police Officer (access required)

Ignacio v. U.S. A Pentagon police officer who allegedly assaulted a contract security officer assigned to the Pentagon, while the two were stationed at a Pentagon security checkpoint, does not have sovereign immunity from a suit for assault under the Federal Tort Claims Act; the 4th Circuit reverses the district court decision that the U.S. was immune from suit because the police officer was not “engaged in investigative or law enforcement activities” when he allegedly assaulted plaintiff.
