Product Liability actions arent always strict liability... in what instances can a product liability action be one in negligence rather than strict liability?

Socratic Method / Re: Ruskiegirl is a man baby!
« on: November 28, 2005, 06:11:01 AM »
What kind of elitist bull are you pulling man, judging someone by the school they went to.  Ruskiegirl has more class in her little pinky finger than you have in your whole being.  Im gonna make the wacky assumption from the fact that you post on this forum that you are a law student or hoping to be one some day.  If you have something to say, why dont you post on your real name.  You are going to be a lawyer and a human being some day, why dont you demonstrate some of your professionalism and show your true face instead of hiding behind a messgaeboard so you can do your flaming safely from behind a computer screen.  As for her appearance, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I think shes a a beautiful girl with a brain on her that would make you ask the creator why he gave to her with both hands and saved the left over stuff to put you together.  No one likes a messageboard troll, get a life.

Well they have a seat chart and usually they do it at random, sometimes it doesnt seem to random though... my Torts professor conforms to your previous experience... we have an RN in our class so whenever something really technical about medicine comes up he always calls on him.

General Board / Re: Parol Evidence Rule v. Interpretation
« on: November 27, 2005, 06:44:46 PM »
There two views for PER, 4-Corners which means that if the document is fully integrated than the judge will only look at the writing in determing the terms that were bargained for.  The other view is the Corbin view, where the judge will allow extrensic evidence, determine whats important and get rid of the rest.    If the document has ambiguous terms than interpretation comes in.  As far as i understand it PER just determines when the court may allow evidence in to determine what the two parties meant.

After reading over 100 cases with opinions ranging from the practical to practically poetry you quickly pick up new ways of communicating.  Law school is great, its a lot of hardwork and I dont say that lightly.  It makes undergrad feel like High School.  However, being in a room with people that are as intelligent if not more so than you has an enlightening effect.  First, you are humbled, you realize you arent that smart.  Then you realize that you have "unique" perspective, maybe you arent as smart as the gunner who always has his hand up, but he keeps missing the issue in a contracts.  Finally, you realize you arent that smart but that one day you are going to make a kick ass lawyer.  This all happens within the first 2-3 weeks.  Then law school becomes an adversarial system and all you do is sleep, study and drink massive quantities of alcohol with your colleagues.  Its great.  - Mike
