Today in history

Aa On this date, April 15, 1912, the luxury liner R.M.S. Titanic slips below the icy North Atlantic waves off the Newfoundland coast.  

Contracts types remember the event because Sir Cosmo Duff Gordon’s quick thinking in getting himself and his wife Lucy (left) into a lifeboat will ultimately lead to the seminal decision in Wood v. Lucy, Lady Duff Gordon.
