Legal Memorandum: Liability of Non-Immune Parties in WY

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

Area of Law: Employee Law, Litigation & Procedure
Keywords: Dismissal on the basis of immunity; Non-immune parties; Agents or employees
Jurisdiction: Wyoming
Cited Cases: None
Cited Statutes: Wyo. Stat. §27-14-104(a)

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).
