The Superior Court holds that EMTs working for American Medical Response of Connecticut were not entitled to Good Samaritan immunity under General Statutes §52-557b.  The court holds that the Act does not apply to for-profit business entities that provide emergency medical services.  The court holds that extending the statute to such for-profit individuals would undermine the legislative intent and public policy of the statute.  Bembe v. American Medical Response of CT, CV14-6049824 (Wilson, J.) (11/15/16)
