GINAMARIE GOMES VS. THE COUNTY OF MONMOUTH AND CORRECT CARE SOLUTIONS, LLC A-1679-14T4

GINAMARIE GOMES VS. THE COUNTY OF MONMOUTH AND CORRECT 
CARE SOLUTIONS, LLC 
A-1679-14T4 

We hold that the Tort Claims Act, N.J.S.A. 59:1-1 to :14-4, does not require a plaintiff, who was treated by a medical provider under contract to provide care to inmates at a county jail, to serve that private contractor with a tort claims notice before she can sue that company for negligence. We accordingly reverse the trial court's dismissal of plaintiff's claims against the contractor for failure to serve it with such a notice.
