New Jersey Legislature to Overturn Recent Supreme Court Decision In Murray v. Plainfield Rescue Squad

As discussed here: https://gdm-law.com/index.php?page=blog&display=92 a unanimous New Jersey Supreme Court held in Murray v. Plainfield Rescue Squad, A-28-10 that a rescue squad (as an entity) is not entitled to immunity under New Jersey law. Instead, the Court ruled that N.J.S.A. 26:2K-29 immunizes only "officers or members" of rescue squads — along with doctors, nurses, some emergency technicians, and hospitals and their trustee boards and staffs — from liability in providing "intermediate life support services" in good faith.

Per the New Jersey Law Journal:

The bill, S-2165, sponsered by Sen. Christopher "Kip" Bateman, R-Somerset and co-sponsor, Sen. Anthony Bucco, R-Morris would add "first aid, ambulance or rescue squads" to list of entities and individuals that have statutory insulation from civil liability in emergency care situations.
