I thought I would say a bit more about my (partial) critique of Larry Kramer’s solution to the problem of unprovided-for cases, which I discussed in class. An unprovided-for case is one in which it looks as if neither state is interested in its law applying. An example is Neumeier. An Ontarioan, who was a guest in a New Yorker’s car, sues the New Yorker in New York state court for negligence in connection with an accident in Ontario. Ontario has a guest statute, which bars a guest from suing a host for negligence. New York doesn’t.
Civil Procedure exam questions from Michael S. Green's course at William and Mary, with occasional posts on other teaching and research.
NOTE: For those interested in old Civ Pro exam questions with answers, I have not systematically updated the answers in the older posts to take into account changes in the law (and especially since 2016). As a result, some answers will be out of date.
To repeat, some answers to questions are out of date!
