Guzman v. County of Los Angeles (1991) 234 Cal.App.3d 1343

The Court of Appeal affirmed the grant of summary judgment in favor of GMSR’s client, holding that a public entity is immune from liability for injuries suffered by a person on an involuntary, 72-hour hold for medical evaluation, even if the person is not actually confined to the mental health ward because of a lack of beds.
