Sandy Steel has posted to SSRN Material Contribution to Damage, Again. The abstract provides:
This case note considers recent statements about the scope of the doctrine of 'material contribution to damage' in the tort of negligence.

It explains five matters that need to be addressed in a reform of this area.
