Calif. Supreme Court Says Retailers Are Not Required To Have Defibrillators on Hand
On Monday, the California Supreme Court ruled that large retail stores are not required to make defibrillators available in case customers or employees experience sudden cardiac arrest and that such a requirement would be an unfair burden on companies. The court said lawmakers are in the best position to determine if such a requirement should be implemented in the state.
