Have you ever been presented with a legal question, thought you knew the answer, but could not put your finger on the case or statute that confirmed your recollection? I have, and it drives me crazy. I think I am right. I know the answer is out there. But I can’t confirm it.
My wife, also a trial lawyer, puts it this way: There are things that everybody just “knows” and finding support for those things is hard to do. That is fine, of course, unless what you know ain’t so.
So, I have decided to capture those “tort law tidbits” and put them where you can find them. I will add one every week or so, depending on what else is happening.
If you have a tidbit you would like to share email it to me. If I like it I will post it and give you due credit.
