Comparative Negligence with Joint & Several Liability: The Best of Both Worlds


Tagged: , , , , ,

Robert H. Lande, Venable Professor of Law at the University of Baltimore School of Law, and James MacAlister, an alumnus of both the School of Law and the Law Review, have co-authored a piece that examines Maryland’s current contributory negligence standard, and suggests it be replaced by a comparative negligence standard that retains joint and several liability. The authors show this new approach would be a vast improvement that would bring Maryland into the mainstream of 21st Century Torts jurisprudence.
