Tobin Obtains Summary Judgment for Education Client on Governmental Immunity

Jay P. Tobin won summary judgment in favor of a local school on the issue of governmental immunity. The school board was sued on a negligence claim. Plaintiff argued that the school board was not entitled to governmental immunity because it was not engaged in a governmental activity at the time of the alleged incident. The school board argued successfully that it was engaged in a governmental activity and, therefore, was entitled to governmental immunity, except to the extent that the governmental immunity was waived through the purchase of liability insurance.
