HB 311

Governmental lmmunity Revisions

This bill addresses important and necessary changes to Utah’s governmental immunity laws. In addition to increasing the aggregate cap on awards from $2 million to $3 million, it limits a court from dismissing lawsuits that individuals bring against the government when technical errors are made regarding the confusing “notice of claim” process. Often times claims are dismissed due to a mistake in navigating that process, and this change will go a long way to ensuring access to the system and justice.
