US Won't Pay For Ferrari Wrecked By FBI Agent 5-20-2011

The U.S. Justice Department is refusing to pay $750,000 to a Michigan insurance company for a Ferrari that was wrecked in Kentucky during a drive by an FBI agent.
In a recent court filing in Detroit, the Justice Department said it's immune to tort claims when certain goods are in the hands of law enforcement.
The 1995 Ferrari F50 was being stored in Lexington, Ky., as part of an investigation into stolen vehicles.
A prosecutor said he was invited by an FBI agent to ride in the vehicle in May 2009. He said the agent lost control, and the car landed against bushes and a small tree.
Southfield-based Motors Insurance Co. said the Ferrari is a total loss. The next court hearing is June 13 in Detroit.
