Feds off the hook in wrecking of Ferrari by FBI agent

• AP
A judge has dismissed a lawsuit against the U.S. government over the wreck of a $750,000 Ferrari driven by an FBI agent, saying federal law grants immunity if property is being held by law enforcement.

The wreck of the rare 1995 F50 sports car was "certainly unfortunate," but the government cannot be sued in such a case, U.S. District Judge Avern Cohn said.

Motors Insurance, based in Southfield, Mich., believes an FBI agent and a prosecutor were out for a joyride when the agent lost control of the Ferrari in a Lexington, Ky., industrial park in 2009. The government has refused to pay for the car.

And of course the agents cannot be sued themselves even though they were not authorized to take the car on the joy ride.  I sincerely hope for the owner's sake the insurance company is forced to pay off the damage to the car.  Let the insurance company go after the feds.  they have deeper pockets and can fight a better fight than an individual can
