Who will decide my Federal Tort Claims Act case ?

There may or may not be an opportunity to negotiate for a settlement of the case during the administrative review process, or after suit is filed and before a trial. Settlement discussions depend on how well the claim is presented and how the involved agency feels about the claim. If the case actually goes to a trial though, it will be a jury trial; your case must be tried in front of a United States Federal District Court Judge, who will decide all disputed issues, and decide how much in money damages to award, if any.
