Current Law Students / Re: NSL: Chronicles of a TTT
« on: January 16, 2005, 08:18:10 PM »
from ebol's post supra:
"Let me make a few corrections:

1) Someone who gets a 125 on the LSAT is not smart enough to get a 4.0 in college.  In my opinion you need to be in the 130+ range before you are smart enough to get As even at the lamest major in the worst college in the country.

2) In order to get a 125 on the LSAT you need to get over 20 questions correct. (http://www.powerscore.com/lsat/help/scale.htm) In fact, 0-15 questions correct will not even get you past 120.  It is only once you are past about 15 correct questions that your score starts moving up.   So it is not correct that blindly marking A for every question would yield a higher score, although it would be close."

Those calculations were incorrect weren't they?
I don't think you understand NSL at all. You don't understand the reason for its existence nor its mission.
Of course you can make foul accusations and assumptions but you still don't get it.......
No hard feelings.

My "criticism" was a mere relaying of facts by virtue of performing calculations in light of NSL's index number calculation formula, which is publically available on its website.

I provided numbers only- you are free to draw your own conclusions from them.

And yes, there are elements of NSL that I do not understand.

I truly HTH.

Enjoy your time now and know that when school starts life will change immensely.
There really is no preparation for the mental discipline required.
"1L" by Scott Turow is pretty good. A diary of his first year @ HLS.

Yes, and your criticism of NSL and its students was exceptionally acute, discerning and enlightened.
I've found that recycling works well with bullyboy slag.
In the immortal words of Bob Dylan "Don't criticize what you can't understand".

I like how you recycle my dig at you without changing anything aside from the agent of ridicule. This is clearly the mark of an accomplished intellect.

HTH.

I thought the "issue" was whether this sounded in battery or negligence......

You don't really know anything about me, which means your opinion is pretty worthless.

I guess I could say the same about you.

The MBA grads I know would think you are a failure and a feminine hygiene product.

Doesn't surprise me that you hang out with the few failures/douchebags from MBA.
Hope you have the suicide prevention number handy. AMFYOYO.

Me thinks the braggart doth protest too much...
D, it's obvious to me (a person of slightly above average intelligence) that you are up there in that frozen tundra hole with nothing but Jagermeister and the palm of your hand to come home to at night.
The traffic on the NSL board galls you because you have no one to speak to up there, nor in cyberspace. You are isolated---a lonely and pathetic drunkard.
I think starting fights here is the only thing that keeps you from putting a bullet in your head.
You need to find another isolated, lonely and pathetic drunkard, hopefully one on birth control.
MBA is for scholars and gentleman. The MBA grads I know wouldn't bother to fart in your general direction.
HTH POSLFPSBDL
AMFYOYO.

Thanks Rapunzel. What is odd is that the trial court cites PA law when we have case law in TN that differs....Perhaps she thinks we are idiots.....
Anyway, I have found lots of case law from PA that addresses why LOIC needs to evolve into a negligence action, rather than battery.
So, I am assuming that is why she chose PA law as controlling.....Anyway, as the doctor I have several TN cases cited in the opinion that are more "gap fillers" than anything else.
At this point, it just doesn't matter as much as it used to...KWIM?
Thanks again.


Hmmm, it would be lovely if you had an arguement that it was an intentional tort, but if the state supreme court insists that it sounds in negligence, then you must argue there.  If you can't find any Tenn. case law with similar facts that comes down on the doctor's side, that would be problematic.  I'd look for cases where the courts have drawn a legal line in that sand by not finding proximate cause.  Preferably in your jusrisdiction, but look outside the state too.  All you need is to kill one element.  This is my general advice without seeing the hypo.  Also, unless the author of the vehicle is a complete idiot, there will be caselaw that helps you somewhere.

Who is French?

I am sure he is French, and it is pronounced, "Lou - zair"
