I have a guaranteed policy question on my torts exam, she is obsessed with negligence and the damages that arise from it so I am almost certain it will have to do with negligence. I need some advice on how to handle this, and ideally would like a policy outline, or flowchart, or checklist or something else. I have GTM and am planning on reading the Czars of the Universe chapter a few more times. What else can a brotha do?

Maybe this isn't the kind of held that you're looking for, but a logical candidate for this type of question would be some sort of stirct liability vs. negligence analysis where there the potential for huge losses on either side. Consider product liability, for example. Section 402A of the Restatement (Second) of Torts sets out the elements for a strict product liability claim but the ALI hedged its bets by writing comment "k" which seems to obsolve perscription drum manufacturers from strict liability. Argue the policy for and against reading comment "k" broadly.
