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

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. 




When does captain of the ship doctrine apply 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!

Think you better check those cases!
In the review the second year student said to know other jurisdictions that TN looked at when they changed the law.
We are responsible for common law and Tn law!

Yes, the fetus must be viable. May be incubated but must be viable, even if born alive.
Ok, someone ask some questions?

Nashville School of Law / Appellate brief
« on: January 12, 2005, 12:21:32 AM »
How, I mean HOW, in the world is this woman going to get 180 appellate briefs read in time to post grades. It took 4 weeks to grade them without reading them.
Let's face it folks, it's not going to happen. I suggest following the rules exactly shall be most important and is about the only thing that will get a cursory glance.
And we all know that "I reviewed my notes before our meeting" is junk.
Man, I wish I could live in her fantasy kingdom.

I'm sure you meant to say "wrongful life"
When can a non viable fetus recover for wrongful death in TN?

Distinguish: wrongful pregnancy, wrongful birth, wrongful life.

A fetus cannot recover for wrongful death.  It's parents can.

Wrongful pregnancy is a pregnancy that results from negligently performed pregnancy abortion procedure or other and the child is healthy.

Wrongful birth is similar, but the child is not healthy.

Wrongful death is an action on the part of a child born unhealthy as a result of negligence.  This is not recognized in Tennessee.
