Partner John J. Davis Obtains Favorable Decision on Behalf of Local School District
Attorneys John J. Davis and Katie Cooper Davis have obtained a favorable decision in a negligence action on behalf of a local school district which had asserted statutory immunity. The Massachusetts Superior Court found that no school district employee had taken any affirmative action that 'originally caused' [the] condition or situation" that led to a student's self-inflicted injury. The court held that a failure to act does not suffice to eliminate governmental immunity from tort liability.
