In this episode of Fire Law Roundup for January 30, 2023, Brad and Curt discuss a race discrimination lawsuit filed by a paid-on-call lieutenant in Michigan; a ruling by the New York Supreme Court Appellate Division that four fire departments sued by a homeowner after a fire cannot be held liable for negligence because they did not owe the homeowner a special duty; a ruling granting summary judgment to a city in a lawsuit filed by Indiana firefighter who was demoted for disobeying orders related to rumor-spreading about a subordinate’s sexual preferences; two cases where medics were accused of improperly tending to patients on police-assist calls where the patients died (these are in addition to the Illinois case where two medics were charged with murder in the death of a patient); and a sexual harassment lawsuit out of FDNY.
