When Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb signed SB.1 into law last week, the Hoosier State became the most recent to enact a liability shield law to protect businesses from lawsuits regarding the coronavirus pandemic. The new Indiana law provides protection from frivolous lawsuits for businesses, schools, health care providers, governments and other entities from lawsuits alleging they are responsible for spreading COVID infections. Just two weeks ago, Alabama Governor Kay Ivey signed similar legislation into law in Alabama. As with other states that have adopted business liability shields, the shields in both Indiana and Alabama are not absolute shields and only protect businesses that have complied or attempted to comply with government mandates and restrictions regarding the coronavirus pandemic. Instances where a business is deemed to have been reckless or guilty of intentional, or fraudulent conduct will still be susceptible to litigation.
