Immunity for "intentional" acts by government employee
The Supreme Court of Michigan handed down a number of rulings on Justice Taylor's last day on the bench. Without exception, the rulings favored insurers and invalidated claims made by injury victims or common citizens, and were signed by the four-person "Engler majority" while it still had the votes to control the outcome of proceedings. In Odom v. Wayne County, the majority overturned a decision by the trial court and Court of Appeals in a case brought by a young woman who was falsely accused of prostitution. The case was returned to the lower court for re-evaluation under the majority's guidelines.
