More on the California Good Samaritan debacle

From GruntDoc (with an assist from Symtym):

The legislature wrote what it meant, in plain language.  The California Supreme Court says the plain language isn’t correct, that their intent was clearly different than that written.

Nothing good will come of this.  I can only hope the California Legislature doesn’t go broke before they can clarify their very plain language so even lawyers can understand it.

(The defendant is going to go to trial over whether her actions were negligent, which is pretty much unavoidable.  I’m told that she’ll probably win, as juries are made of more reasonable people than lawyers.  That doesn’t change the problem this decision will make for all society.)
