Attorney: Utah Supreme Court ruling could change police chases
from The Salt Lake Tribune
In their Aug. 6 decision, the Utah Supreme Court ruled that police have a "duty of care," or a responsibility, to the people they chase down. The decision ruled in favor of the family of Wayne Torrie, 16, who died in 2010 when he crashed in Weber county after a high-speed police chase. Torrie's family sued the officer that chased him, as well as the Weber County Sheriff's Office.
