Re: [infoguys-list] "Good Samaritan" Sued In California
- Marvin -
As despicable as this case is, in my eyes, I'm not really too concerned
about the end result. I believe a jury will follow the letter of the law and not
hold her liable. The code clearly states "emergency care" and not "medical
care". With that said, she rendered "emergency care" by tending to the needs
of a person in an emergency. The common definitions of both "emergency" and
"care" will be presented by her attorneys
I am quite curious though as to how the Supremes would find the code section
ambiguous. Perhaps it is because the second paragraph addresses exemptions
for certain professionals.
