'Joyriding' FBI agent who wrecked Ferrari F50 off the hook
Motors Insurance sued the two government agencies, alleging that the car was being taken for a joyride. According to one of the few bits of evidence the insurance company was able to coerce out of the defendants, "Assistant U.S. Attorney J. Hamilton Thompson said he was invited for a 'short ride'," said ride being much shorter and crash-ier than anticipated.
Not that it mattered – the Chicago Tribune reports that the judge has ruled against Motors Insurance, saying that law enforcement has immunity when it comes to property in its possession, and that even though "the object was to control and preserve relevant evidence," it apparently doesn't matter what happens to that evidence nor for what reason. Score another one for the government, and the rest of ya'll get a doughnut.
