Here is my recurring problem around final exam time: how to explain to students when they need to discuss the unforeseeable plaintiff. In most cases, the plaintiff is foreseeable, so on the exam I really don't want students to waste time identifying and discussing a non-issue. A seasoned lawyer will "know it when they see it," but just as that was not satisfactory in the old obscenity cases it's not a great response in this context either. I am wondering how other torts professors explain this context within the essay exam context.
