In the old days doctors and emergency personnel used to place a sticker on the back of their personal vehicles called the star of life. After a few law suites they stopped.

I know that one doesn't move a person after impact accidents, but, I had training. A friend of mine became a paraplegic because she walked around after being ejected from an automobile.

When I read this article, tragic as it is, I asked three questions: Do most people realize that airbags smoke after deployment? How many people have the capacity to think "rationally" during an emergency? Were the samaritans actions avoidable under the circumstances, or intended to cause malice?

And a greedy general populace that directs the Politicians and Judges.
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.

If that's California's decision, then that's their decision.

So, if you're in California and see someone in an accident, the best thing to do is just avoid having anything to do with it. Are they trapped in their car with fire coming closer to them? Remember, once they're dead, they can't sue you.

One caveat: Remember that this is California, and it won't be too long before they decide that anyone who had knowledge of the accident yet did nothing about it can be sued.

The French had the best idea; Sue any one for having money, then put them to the guillotine, in an entertaining fashion.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

I would have assumed you had learned your lesson regarding mentioning the French.

Apparently you haven't been within spitting distant of an accident with your corporate logo painted prominently on the side of your truck in Florida and been sued for $11,000,000. We were there. We had no involvement in the accident whatsoever. Our truck was a "blind spot." To avoid a costly trial (you can sue for any reason in Florida) the scum bag and her sleazy lawyer walked away with two million dollars.

Here's another way to create the same link: good samaritans, bad judgement

This verdict can only serve to make more people "stand around and do nothing" when something bad happens. With judgements like this, it's no wonder that the feeling is that "you're ***ed if you do, and ***ed if you don't"

Wasn't there a state that made it against the law NOT to help in situations like this? If memory serves me right, the final episode of Seinfeld built its gags around that very premise.

One can only wonder how those judges would have ruled if it had been them that Miss Torti had pulled out of the car.

My first aid teacher said that in Arizona you can be cited for not stopping and at least direct traffic or something like that... Any Zonies on here?

The universal thump seems to pass over corrupt politicians with alarming frequency.

On a an up note. Christmas carolers came to our door last night and gave us song. They all stayed upright, so, no law suites are pending. Smile
