Hunter, Shannon & Amoroso on Teaching Palsgraf
Richard Hunter, John Shannon, and Henry Amoroso have posted to SSRN A Teaching Note on Negligence: Palsgraf Revisited. The abstract provides:
The case of Palsgraf v. Long Island Railroad (1928) provides an opportunity to engage students in a study of the cause of action termed negligence. The article explores issues relating to proof of negligence, defenses to negligence, and more directly, to the views of two American jurists, Benjamin Cardozo and William Andrews, relating to the issues of duty and causation—critical elements of proof.
