Army officer says she was raped, but Supreme Court ruling blocks her from justice | ABC News

Capt. Erin Scanlon of the 82nd Airborne Division has said she was raped by another service member at Fort Bragg in September of 2016. When the military took over the case just a week before trial, her advocate, one of her former special victims counsels, was forced to testify against her. Scanlon also said she wasn’t allowed to sit in for the trial, and she cannot file a suit against the Army due to a Supreme Court ruling that prevents service members from suing the government. The unnamed male accused was a sergeant first class in Delta Force and was found to be not guilty. “In my opinion, I really didn’t have a chance at justice from the beginning,” commented Scanlon.
