MUNICIPAL LAW: Appellate Court Holds Swim Coach Immune From Negligence Claims For After-school Activity

During a warm-up drill after school one team member dove into a pool, landing on the minor plaintiff.  The Appellate Court holds that the claim is barred by governmental immunity, and that no exception applied because participation in the extra-curricular activity was voluntary.

Jahn v. Board of Education of Town of Monroe,  AC 35997 (September 9, 2014)
