On January 15, 2013, the Supreme Court heard oral argument in Levin v. United States. The question in this case is whether a civilian can bring a battery claim against the United States for an injury caused by military medical personnel while they were performing their duties, or whether such a claim is prohibited by sovereign immunity.

To discuss the case, we have Kyndra Rotunda, who is an Associate Professor of Military & International Law and Executive Director of the Military Law & Policy Institute & AMVETS Legal Clinic. She is also a Lecturer at Berkeley School of Law.
