Hull v. Town of Newtown

Plaintiff, an assistant nurse manager, was shot by a patient admitted to the hospital by a police officer pursuant to § 17a-503 (a). The court held that the defendant has discretional immunity to liability because searching the patient was not a ministerial duty imposed by the arrest policy, which the court interpreted as applying only in the criminal context.
