9. This question focuses on the opinion in Rigtrup v. Strawberry Water Users Ass’n in the text. Assume (1) that strict liability applies to supplying electricity, (2) that neither the plaintiff nor the defendant was negligent, and (3) that failureof the defendant to supply electricity was the sole proximate cause of the plaintiff’s losses. Also assume that Rigtrup’s damages equaled $100,000. Which of the following is correct? [Hint: Remember that the version of modified comparative negligence in Rigtrup case was “not as great as” rather than “not greater than.”Strict liability, plus proximate cause, plus injury, equals liability, where there are no offsetting defenses. If there are no offsetting defenses, Rigtrup is entitled to a full recovery of $100,000.
As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.
Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern
I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern
The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
