Langford v. United States: The Court Rejects “The King Can Do No Wrong”?
Or, No More Kings?
If a Tree Falls on Me in a National Forest, Will a Court Hear It?
Let’s pretend that it hasn’t been 5 months since I blogged…
I’m writing a section of my paper on torts, and as usual, I got distracted by something interesting. No, not internet kittens, although I am testing out WrittenKitten as a tool for giving incentives (pictures of puppies) to write. Anyways, after learning that the federal government is NOT responsible for torts under any theory of strict liability (the “sonic boom case” Laird v. Nelms 406 U.S. 797) I came across another interesting section of law: trees falling on people in national parks.
