01-29-09 Hyacinth Thorpe, etc. v. Jasford Wiggan, et al. A-1995-07T2
A father who left his four-year-old child in a smoke-filled car strapped in a car seat, with no means of escape, is not entitled to parental immunity for the child's death. The father's actions do not implicate customary child-care issues or a legitimate exercise of parental authority or supervision.
