Service members and their families cannot sue the federal government for medical malpractice because of a controversial Supreme Court ruling. But one senator has now introduced an amendment to the Senate’s defense bill that would reverse that ruling.

Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., introduced the amendment Tuesday that would overturn the Feres Doctrine and allow service members to file lawsuits for harm or death caused by medical malpractice by military medical staff.
