§5B-1A-8. Limitation on liability of owner from whom state
acquires land or interest therein.
During the interim period when an abandoned railroad
right-of-way is held by the state for possible future railroad use,
the owner of the railroad right-of-way from whom the state acquired
the land or an interest therein is relieved from civil liability
for any personal injury or property damage occurring on the
right-of-way during such interim period, which might otherwise
arise from ownership.
