Recent cases:

2. Tort Claims Act gave immunity to negligent 911 operations. Turner v Township of Irvington 430 N.J. Super. 274 (App. Div. 2013)

We hold that N.J.S.A. 52:17C-10(d), which immunizes 9-1-1 operators for conduct that is not wanton and willful, and N.J.S.A. 59:2-10, a general Tort Claims Act provision which immunizes public entities for the wanton and willful conduct of their employees, together prevent a public entity employer from being held liable for its operators conduct regardless of their level of culpability.

3. Case for immigrant defendants to withdraw guilty pleas is not retroactive. Chaidez v United States 133 S. Ct. 1103 (2013)

In Padilla v. Kentucky, 559 U.S. (2010), this Court held that the Sixth Amendment requires an attorney for a criminal defendant to provide advice about the risk of deportation arising from a guilty plea. We consider here whether that ruling applies retroactively, so that a person whose conviction became final before we decided Padilla can benefit from it. We conclude that, under the principles set out in Teague v. Lane, 489 U.S. 288 (1989), Padilla does not have retroactive effect.
