In order to hold the defendant liable for negligence, however, the claimant has to meet the court’s threshold as far as justifying duty of care is concerned. Failure to evidence duty of care subsequently results in the collapse of the case. Duty of care is a legal obligation that is highly influenced by the relationship between the defendant and the claimant. In other words, both parties must exhibit a given and acceptable form of relationship under the relevant legal provisions. The relationship between the defendant and the claimant forms the basis of the aforementioned legal obligation.
When looking at the problem question, we see that the main legal issues are that of Duty of Care, Negligence and Causation. This idea of duty of care being an integral part of the courts; which then is quintessential for determining whether or not there is a liability of negligence can be seen in the case of D v East Berkshire Community NHS Trust (2005). When we relate this idea of duty of care to the problem question we have to find out whether or not Wessex Police were liable for negligence (another important legal issue), this can be found out by the means of causation and the tests attached to it. Applying the ‘But For Test’, we see that but for the police stopping at the gas station, they were delayed to come to Barbara's house and prevent the crime from happening. Through this we see that we have established factual causation but the next step is to establish legal causation and this includes the idea of remoteness (foreseeability).

I. Can Joyce Beyer’s successfully bring a legal malpractice suit? In order for a client to successfully bring a legal malpractice suit they must show the required elements of legal malpractice which are “(1) an attorney-client relationship; (2) a duty owed to the client by the attorney to use such skill, prudence, and diligence as lawyers of ordinary skill and capacity possess in exercising and performing the tasks which they undertake; (3) a breach of that duty; (4) the breach being the proximate cause of the client's damages; and (5) actual loss or damage resulting from the negligence.” Mainor v. Nault, 101 P.3d 308, 310 (Nev. 2004). This memo will only discuss elements 2-5 in that order, in addition the duty and breach elements will be combined as well as the proximate cause and actual loss elements. The first element of attorney-client relationship is well established so it need not be discussed.
In Hedley Byrne & Co Ltd v Heller & Partners Ltd  AC 465, the courts made a rule that if someone possesses a skill and undertakes to use that skill to assist someone a duty of care then arises in that event. In this case Naive was a lawyer and therefore he had a duty to disclose information during the transaction. At this point Naive still has the duty of disclosure, at this stage he is even more obliged to disclose the information than before because the matter too arises to the other contracting party. If he denies disclosing the information, such a contract would just be merely based on undue influence altogether .The contract would be said to be void ab initio, because of the presence of fraudulent misrepresentation. The presence of Attorney John Esquire would greatly impact the duty of disclosure though the aspect of undue influence would now be absent since both parties have an attorney at their representation table.
The company said that they let him go for weak performance in the work place in which I feel gave them an excuse to let Thompson go. I also don’t agree because I feel that he was being discriminated against just because his wife filed a complaint with the EOCC. Even though Thompson was “a person claiming to be aggrieved … by an alleged employment practice” I feel that the en banc Sixth Circuit reasoning’s that Thompson was not entitled to sue NAS for retaliation just because he had not engaged in any activity protected by the statute is still questionable (Oyez). I also don’t feel that under that statute is defined fully. Also, I believe that his firing by NAS constituted unlawful retaliation because he should have not been fired especially under those circumstances.
Hence, the courts reserves the right to punish those preside or wilfully interfere with its authority. Contempt of court was instigated by the notion that the court administration must be liberated to adjudicate on those matters before it, unimpeded by any outside influences including that may prevent the flow of justice. It seeks to punish those whose conduct that tends to obstruct, prejudice or abuse the administration of justice, whether in a particular case or in general (Bradley and Ewing 1993). Therefore, anything which plainly tends to create disdain of the authority of the courts of justice such as the open insult or the resistance to the judges who preside there or disobedient to their orders is deemed as contempt of court. It may be categorized as civil or criminal contempt.
Finally, a plaintiff must show redressibility. Redressibility is the plaintiff’s ability to sue, and win. A circumstantial argument on the part of the plaintiff is not enough. They must show how they want the court to rule, and how that ruling will correct the injustice. Im the case of Lujan v. Defenders of wildlife the Supreme Court define redressibility requirements.
To understand that the decision was correct, I must first explain the law of negligence and ex turpi causa. Negligence To bring a successful claim for negligence, four elements have to be satified: duty of care (DoC), breach of duty (BoC), causation and ha... ... middle of paper ... ...from their crime, shown in Murphy v Culhane4. This principle is less significant in tort law as generally, tort law is concerned with compensating loss rather than the claimant making gains. However, in claim for indemnity, it can be applied to prevent claimant being relieved of the consequences of their crime. The proportionality test looks to see if the decision being made is proportionate to the damages caused.
Introduction In the discussion which follows, the function served by ‘evidence’ within the adversarial system will be considered. The central importance of relevance to the admissibility of evidence will be linked to the purpose served by the tribunal of fact. The range of factors which impact on the criminal justice system will act as a basis to consider the justification for the exclusion of certain evidential material. Developments in attitudes as a result of recent legislation will lead the discussion to the conclusion that the above statement is not sustainable Setting the scene Purpose. The adversarial system involves competing versions of disputed events being advanced by parties to the litigation.
