§4-1A-15. Right to interlocutory appeal.

Denial of a claim of legislative immunity is immediately

appealable under the collateral order doctrine because the Speech

or Debate Clause is designed to protect legislators not only from

the consequences of litigation's results but also from the burden

of defending themselves.
