        AN ACT to amend the civil rights law, in relation to  medical  attention
          for persons under arrest
 
          The  People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
 
     1    Section 1. The civil rights law is amended by adding a new section  28
     2  to read as follows:
     3    §  28.  Medical  attention  for persons under arrest. When a person is
     4  under arrest or otherwise in the custody  of  a  police  officer,  peace
     5  officer or other law enforcement representative or entity, such officer,
     6  representative  or  entity shall have a duty to provide attention to the
     7  medical and mental health needs of such person,  and  obtain  assistance
     8  and  treatment  of  such needs for such person, which are reasonable and
     9  provided in good faith under the circumstances. Any person who  has  not
    10  received  such reasonable and good faith attention, assistance or treat-
    11  ment and who, as a result, suffers serious physical  injury  or  signif-
    12  icant  exacerbation  of  an  injury  or  condition shall have a cause of
    13  action against such officer, representative, and/or entity. In any  such
    14  civil  action,  the  court,  in  addition to awarding actual damages and
    15  costs, may award reasonable attorneys' fees to a  successful  plaintiff.
    16  The  provisions of this section are in addition to, but shall not super-
    17  sede, any other rights or remedies available in law or equity.
    18    § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
 
         EXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                                   LBD13190-09-0
