In this case, the defendant was accused of selling adulterated milk. It was sufficient for liability to prove that the milk was adulterated and that he was selling it ; his mistake that he had thought the milk was pure was irrelevant. Similarly in the much later case of Alphacell v. Woodward, liability was established under the section 2 (1) (a) of the Rivers ( Prevention of Pollution) Act 1951 by the defendants causing polluted water to enter a river. The fact that they had not known that the pollution was taking place and that they had mistakenly thought that their filtering system was operating efficiently did not exonerate them. So based on the illustrated cases, we can see clearly what is strict liability really is.
Savannah Gitchel Mrs. Hodges-Bond Cambridge US History 3 October 2016 Meeting of the Minds Dred Scott The Dred Scott v. Sandford case was a pivotal point in leading America to civil war.

The case of R. v. Schoenborn is a troubling case involving the death of three children and the defence of not criminally responsible on account of mental disorder. This defence must be critically analyzed along with the evidence and expert opinions as it could absolve the accused of the charges. As well, the precedent that the verdict provides is critical to the legal system and its future implication and thus give the decision more importance. After a thorough examination of the facts, it is evident that the verdict of the Supreme Court of British Columbia is correct and reflects the administration’s objectives and beliefs. This will be demonstrated through the application of legal principles and elements.
This rule was laid down by the Privy Council in the case of Overseas Tankship (UK) Ltd v Mortis Dock & Engineering Co Ltd (The Wagon Mound no 1). In this case the defendants spilled furnace oil from their ship into Sydney harbour and damaged the plaintiff’s wharf. The oil subsequently caused a fire when molten metal dropped into the water and ignited cotton waste floating in the port. The Privy Council held that the defendant is not liable. Because a reasonable man could not possibly have foreseen the wharf would be damaged in this way, as a result of the defendant’s act.
In all areas of law reasonableness tends to play a fundamental role including reasonably foreseeability, the reasonable man, beyond reasonable doubt and reasonable force to name a few. The concept of reasonableness in public decision making is no different and has developed, expanded and retracted in various jurisdictions over the past century. In public decision making, reasonableness particularly relates to judicial review, and the actions, events or otherwise which lead a public body to arrive at a particular decision rather the decision itself. It is of great importance that reasonableness is applied to public bodies in order to control the exercise of power and to prevent arbitrary and unfair decisions. In this essay, we will examine

In 2013, the Supreme Court case Moncrieffe v. Holder refuses a Board of Immigration Appeals to removal from the United States of a lawful permanent resident based on a long term criminal conviction related to sole possession of small amounts of marijuana. The case finally made it all the way to the Supreme Court, which is considered a rather technical question of the interpretation of the U.S Immigration laws. Local police departments have long been accused of profiling Hispanic, African-Americans, and other minorities of race in law enforcement activities, including run of the mill traffic stop. Critics fear that immigration enforcement by state and local authorities will lead to increase of racism. Many Americans have shown concerns with the implementation of racist discrimination of the U.S immigration laws by state police agencies and local authorities.

A recent judgement of the court involving the manager of a football club has sparked a lot of public interest and criticism. The court held that the manager, Alex Ferg could not hold a maintainable suit against the defendants as it involved multiple pharmaceutical companies. The works of Ernest Weinrib, a law professor at University of Toronto who developed the theories of private law were cited.
