Duty of care defined

18.   [Defendant] also owed plaintiff ... a duty of care not to drink under age, or to file bottle rockets out of his anus.

This seems like one of those things that just didn’t really need to be stated.

You kinda think people would understand either bit of it separately.  Certainly you’d think that people would appreciate that underage drinking and shooting rockets out of your arse are not good ideas if put together.

Maybe the obvious things are just not so obvious after all.

The Toronto Sun ended its coverage of this story with a reminder that “[s]tatements of claim contain unproven allegations.”
