Defibrillators not required at California stores
Inland News Today

The California Supreme Court on Monday ruled that large retailers aren’t required to have defibrillators on hand to help treat customers and workers who suffer sudden cardiac arrest.

The ruling signals the end of a Southern California family’s wrongful-death lawsuit alleging Target was liable for a customer’s sudden death from cardiac arrest because it didn’t have one of the devices as part of its first-aid plan. The state Supreme Court ruled such a requirement was an unfair burden on Target.
