Issue: If a defendant is dismissed on the basis of immunity, are attempts to bring claims against that defendant’s employees or agents meaningless?

Merely because one party is dismissed on the basis of statutory immunity does not mean that non-immune parties—agents or employees alleged to act willfully and wantonly—cannot be held liable. See Wyo. Stat. §27-14-104(a) (providing that co-employees have no statutory immunity for intentional wrongs to other employee).
