In short, only when the parent is negligent themselves.

When the parent knows or has reason to know of the child's tendency toward the tortious behavior.
When the child is under 18.
When the child lives at home.
When the parent has had a chance to correct the child's behavior.


A parent is statutorily responsible for negligent entrustment (or tortious activity) of a minor when?

Yes, but what about captain of the ship?

Vicarious liability:
In Tn, the employer is liable for the employee's negligence solely on the doctrine of
"respondeat superior".

When does captain of the ship doctrine apply in Tennessee?

No, I have my other ears on.  Good advice, bad question.

Captain of the ship doctrine applies when in Tennessee?



Dude, got your listening ears on?
We do not have to list cases nor do we have to know case names but we do need to know how Tn law differs from other jurisdictions and why. Thus the advice!

I don't think we will be required to list cases where the court looked at other jurisdictions.

I know we will need to know the common law, too.

Give me 3 cases in which Tennessee changed the law after examining other jurisdictions...
(please)

I suspect this will not come up on the exam.

Besides I can't remember.

Right, I meant wrongful life.

And right, viable fetus only.

I don't think her image of herself would allow her to change her mind.

What I learned from Memo #2 ... is that you can still get a good grade and be ticked off. I did well on the second paper (thanks to the random grade generator), but I would still like to know what I did well on so I can hopefully do the same thing on Memo #3.

Ask for a meeting.  I think that's the only way.

Let's see.  Prof is going half-way around the world, will grade exams during the 30 hours in the air, and we will probably have to wait until the 24th for our mid-term exam grades.  Yes,no?

I hope she doesn't graduate to teach that one!


That would force me to make some difficult decisions.

That is the worst part of it.

I'm hoping TBA will offer a seminar or something.

And remember, we will have another LWR in the third year I think.


I am so burned out on that class I can't stand it. I almost feel like I need to audit a LWR class somewhere else to get a better handle on the nonsense she has taught us.
