Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

62-4-50Immunity for good faith written request of investigation--False written request as misdemeanor.

Any person or party participating in good faith in the making of a written request pursuant to § 62-4-47 is immune from any liability, civil or criminal, that might otherwise be incurred or imposed and has the same immunity for participation in any judicial proceeding resulting from the request. Immunity extends in the same manner to public officials or employees involved in the investigation of the facts contained in written requests or to any person who in good faith cooperates with the investigation. A written request made in good faith does not constitute the wrongful failure to pay a claim or to pay it on time. Any person or party who knowingly makes a false or malicious written request for an investigation, is guilty of a Class 2 misdemeanor.
