B- Carin Careful was involved in an accident where she was driving down a residential street and, just for a second, took her eyes off the road to reprimand her 4 year old child, who was sitting in the back seat. At that time, she was struck by an automobile, driven by Carl Careless, who was backing out of his driveway at 60 miles per hour. Because the law in that state regarding negligence was governed by the doctrine of contributory negligence (which means that if the plaintiff contributes to the slightest degree to his or her own injuries, he or she is barred from ANY recovery), Careful would be able to recover “0” if she sued Careless. Careful’s attorney wants to litigate and use the law of the the adjacent state, which is governed by comparative negligence (see definition in back of text ), which would allow a recovery for Careful if applied by the Court. Will the Court allow the attorney to use the precedent of the adjacent state? Why or why not? Discuss binding and persuasive precedent…..( HALF PAGE)
