Civil Tort Immunity Bill Passed

Civil Tort Immunity Bill Passed

On Thursday, February 18, 2021, Governor Holcomb signed a bill that provides civil immunity to businesses from lawsuits arising from COVID-19. This immunity applies to all businesses, including restaurants and bars, stores, hospitals, nursing homes, schools, government offices, and businesses that manufactured COVID-19 protection products. The law is now in effect and is retroactive to March of 2020. Please refer to our article, Civil Tort Immunity and What It Means for The Businesses and Residents of Indiana, for a more detailed explanation of this bill.

There are exceptions to this protection, however. Although this immunity applies to civil torts, a lawsuit can still be filed in instances of gross negligence or willful or wanton misconduct. The immunity also does not apply to lawsuits involving contract claims.
