Are Public Law Librarians Immune From Liability?

There's lots of good stuff in the latest edition of Law Library Journal (Winter 2007).

Are Public Law Librarians Immune from Suit? Muddying the Already Murky Waters of Law Librarian Liability by John Cannan look particularly interesting.
Abstract:

Public law librarians--academic law librarians at public universities and court and other government librarians--may enjoy public official immunities protecting them from lawsuits, but Mr. Cannan explains why librarian immunity is still of some concern. He analyzes several types of public official immunities available to law librarians.
