Retirement & Social Security (RSS) CHAPTER 51-A, ARTICLE 15
* § 605-b. Uniformed court officers and peace officers; certain
disabilities. Notwithstanding any provision of this chapter or of any
general, special or local law to the contrary, any member who is a
uniformed court officer or peace officer in the unified court system who
contracts any condition of impairment of health caused by diseases of
the heart, resulting in disability or death to such court officer or
peace officer, presently employed, and who shall have sustained such
disability while so employed, shall be presumptive evidence that such
disability was incurred in the performance and discharge of duty and the
natural and proximate result of an accident, unless the contrary be
proved by competent evidence; provided, however, that prior to entry
into service, such member successfully passed a physical examination
which failed to disclose evidence of any disease or other impairment of
the heart.
