This weeks assignment will give you a fact pattern, and it will ask you to discuss whether the elements of negligence are present. Please keep in mind the following:
You should assume that all facts laid out in the prompt will be stipulated to (agreed to) by both parties. Problems of proof are very interesting, but they are outside of the scope of your reading. You should assume that both sides will admit that everything in the prompt happened.
You must identify all the elements of negligence and apply the facts to determine whether those elements are established.
Perhaps, the most famous negligence case in recent years is the McDonald’s coffee case. The below link provides and interesting factual breakdown of why a jury would rule against McDonald’s in that case: https://www.ttla.com/index.cfm?pg=mcdonaldscoffeecasefacts
