Sharp Healthcare v. County of San Diego, D048986

In a suit over defendant-county's decision that it would no longer pay for the medical care expenses of arrestees who receive treatment at the hospitals before they are booked or otherwise committed into county jail, judgment for plaintiff is reversed as defendant is not liable for the medical care expenses of a person arrested and treated at a hospital before the arrestee is committed to the county jail.
