CO-EMPLOYEE HELD IMMUNE FROM LIABILITY FOR NEGLIGENT/WANTON CONDUCT
Brunson v. Lucas, --- So.2d ----, 2008 WL 4093793 (Ala.Civ.App. 2008):
An employee who had received workers' compensation benefits for injuries received when he was hit by a motor vehicle driven by a co-employee while crossing the street from the employer's parking lot to the employer's plant entrance brought an action against co-employee, alleging that the co-employee had negligently or wantonly injured the employee. The Circuit Court of Choctaw County entered summary judgment for the co-employee. The Alabama Court of Civil Appeals held that the co-employee was immune from liability for negligent or wanton conduct under the Alabama Workers' Compensation statutes.
