32 CFR 750.25 - Scope of liability.
(b)Exclusions from liability. Statutes and case law have established categories of exclusions from FTCA liability.
(1)Statutory exclusions. Section 2680 of Title 28 lists claims not cognizable under the FTCA. They include:
(i) Claims based on the exercise or performance of, or the failure to exercise or perform, a discretionary Government function;
(ii) Admiralty claims under 46 U.S.C. 741- 752. Claims under the Death on the High Seas Act ( 46 U.S.C. 761), however, are cognizable under the FTCA. All admiralty claims will be referred to the Judge Advocate General for adjudication. Admiralty claims against the Navy shall be processed under part 752 of this Chapter;
(iv) Claims arising from the combat activities of the military or naval forces, or the Coast Guard, during time of war.
(2)Additional claims not payable. Although not expressly statutorily excepted, the following types of claims shall not be paid under the FTCA:
(i) A claim for personal injury or death of a member of the armed forces of the United States incurred incident to military service or duty. Compare United States v. Johnson, 481 U.S. 681 (1987); Feres v. United States, 340 U.S. 135 (1950) with Brooks v. United States, 337 U.S. 49 (1949);
(ii) Any claim by military personnel or civilian employees of the Navy, paid from appropriated funds, for personal property damage occurring incident to service or Federal employment, cognizable under 31 U.S.C. 3721 and the applicable Personnel Claims Regulations, 32 CFR part 751;
(iv) Any claim for personal injury or death covered by the Federal Employees' Compensation Act ( 5 U.S.C. 8116c);
(vi) That portion of any claim for personal injury or property damage, caused by the negligence or fault of a Government contractor, to the extent such contractor may have assumed liability under the terms of the contract (see United States v. Seckinger, 397 U.S. 203 (1969) and § 750.23(c)(2);
(vii) Any claim against the Department of the Navy by another Federal agency. Property belonging to the Government is not owned by any one department of the Government. The Government does not reimburse itself for the loss of its own property except where specifically provided for by law; and
(viii) Any claim for damage to a vehicle rented pursuant to travel orders.
