Tort/Negligence – Public-Duty Doctrine – Negligence – Ride to Motel – Intoxication (access required)

Estate of Burgess v. Hamrick. A woman whose intoxicated husband was killed while he attempted to cross a highway after a sheriff's deputy let him off at a motel is barred from claims by the public-duty doctrine and has no valid claim against the deputy in his individual capacity because his actions were not corrupt or malicious.
