    CIVIL IMMUNITY - SELF-DEFENSE - Adds to existing law relating to civil
    actions to provide immunity from civil liability for persons who use force
    in justifiable or otherwise permissible self-defense; to provide for the
    award of attorney's fees and other costs;




    SECTION 1. That Chapter 2, Title 5, Idaho Code, be, and the same is
    hereby amended by the addition thereto of a NEW SECTION, to be known and des-
    ignated as Section 5-249, Idaho Code, and to read as follows:

    5-249. CIVIL IMMUNITY FOR SELF-DEFENSE. (1) A person who uses force as
    justified in section 18-4009, Idaho Code, or as otherwise permitted in sections 19-201 through 19-205, Idaho Code, is immune from any civil action for the use of such force.

    The court shall award reasonable attorney's fees, court costs, compensation for loss of income, and all reasonable expenses incurred by the defendant in defense of any civil action brought by a plaintiff if the courtfinds that the defendant is immune from such an action pursuant to this section.



    STATEMENT OF PURPOSE


    RS 16170


    The purpose of this legislation is to give a person immunity from
    civil action for using force to defend his life, family or
    property from those who would seek to harm them or for coming to
    the aid of another who is threatened. This in no way is intended
    to apply to if such force is used against law enforcement
    officers. It would also allow award of reasonable attorney's
    fees, court costs, compensation for loss of income and all
    expenses incurred by the defendant in defense of civil action if
    the court finds that the defendant is immune from such an action.


    it has been shortened to reflect armed citizens only.
    if you like this law thank Bill Sali.
