Harry and Kay Robinson purchased a new Audi 100 LS automobile from Seaway Volkswagen, Inc. in Massena, New York, in 1976. The following year, as Kay Robinson passed through Oklahoma on Interstate 44 en route to the Robinsons' new home in Arizona, the Audi was struck from the rear by a drunk driver in a 1971 Ford Torino. The impact of the collision itself did not directly injure any of the Robinsons, but the crash resulted in the Audi's doors jamming shut and a puncture in the car's gas tank. A fire then severely burned the trapped Kay Robinson and her two children riding in the Audi, Eva and Sam.
The Robinsons did not bring a suit against Lloyd Hull, the drunk driver. He had no insurance or assets and was therefore judgment proof. The Robinsons claimed that a product defect in the car led to the injuries they sustained...
This is a C-Student's dream!! Not to mention a Cheap C-Student's dream because now they don't have to go out and buy one of those briefing supplement books (I assume they are still being sold at the off-campus books stores, right??)
it's there! I wanted to get a checklist of analyzing double jeopardy questions for a CrimPro class?? It's there.
I don't know if law students of today know this, but we used to have to go to a little slimy bookstore/copyshop/pawnshop to copy class notes from someone that took Prof. C's CrimLaw II class two years ago, and had to pay 10¢ a page!! That's if Prof. C hadn't already gone down to the bookstore/copyshop/pawnshop and walked out with the original copy telling the owner to 'sue him' if he wanted to. (Prof. C was one bad MoFo... and I don't mean the law firm.)
I stopped my research (in other words, no more Google searching) at this point, but I did wonder if there were more 'advanced' cites out there for C students that were aspiring to become B- students. Someone let me know if there are online social communities that allow you to correspond with other law students to discuss these cases. If there isn't, I may have found my new path to riches and fame. I'll have to do some more 'research' on that subject.
Although many law students may be disheartened by how much law school costs, that they'll have thirty years of student loans to pay back, and they're entering what could be the darkest time in the history of law firm hiring... at least they can sleep well knowing that they can at least show up to their CivPro II class in the morning with a fully briefed case and the hope that the Prof will call on someone else that day.
