Unit 2 Case Study 2 As pedestrians exited at the close of an arts and crafts show, Jason Davis, an employer of the show’s producer, stood near the exit. Suddenly and without warning, Davis turned around and collided with Yvonne Esposito, an 80-year-old woman. Esposito was knocked to the ground, fracturing her hip. After hip replacement surgery, she was left with a permanent physical impairment. Esposito filed suit in a federal district court against Davis and others, alleging negligence. The paragraphs that follow will address any factors that may contribute to the negligence of Mr. Davis and others, as well as what those factors may indicate in these circumstances. First, a tort and its purpose must be understood. A tort is described as “a private or civil wrong or injury…for which the court will proved a remedy in the form of an action for damages” (Black, 1990).
