Additional Liability Under Respondeat Superior

Concerning additional liability of a defendant who admits liability under respondeat superior.
Session:
2021 Regular Session
Subject:
Civil Law
Bill Summary

A recent Colorado supreme court case held that in a civil action when an employer admits liability for the tortious actions of its employee, the plaintiff cannot assert direct negligence claims against the employer arising out of the same incident. The bill allows a plaintiff to bring such claims against an employer or against a principal that admits liability for the actions of its agent.


(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
