Law of Surprise

Law of Surprise Adopted

In a unanimous vote 🗳 of both houses, The South Dakota state legislature has passed HB 1012 and Governor Noem has signed the bill making “The Law of Surprise” (as seen on Netflix’s The Witcher) codified law in South Dakota.

It reads: “The Law dictates that a man saved by another is expected to offer to his savior a boon whose nature is unknown to one or both parties. In most cases, the boon takes the form of the saved man’s firstborn child, conceived or born without the father’s knowledge.”
