Commonwealth v. South

In Commonwealth v. South, the Superior Court interpreted and applied the Drug Overdose Response Immunity Act, holding that the defendant failed to produce evidence showing: (1) that the person who called the police reasonably believed the defendant was in need of immediate medical attention to prevent death or serious bodily injury due to a drug overdose, and also (2) that the person remained with the defendant until the authorities arrived. Both elements are required by the Act.
