AMERICAN LEGION POST NO. 57 V. LEAHEY, 681 SO.2D 1337 (ALA. 1996)

Patron who was injured in fall at American Legion post brought action against post, and moved for declaration that statute allowing introduction in personal injury actions of evidence that plaintiffs medical or hospital expenses have been or will be paid or reimbursed by collateral source is unconstitutional. The Calhoun Circuit Court, No. CV-93-395, Samuel H. Monk 11, J., entered order holding statute unconstitutional, and post appealed. The Supreme Court, Almon, J., held that statute allowing admission of such evidence violated due process and equal protection guarantees of State Constitution. Affirmed.
