Li v. Yellow Cab Co.. A Belated and Inglorious Centennial of the California Civil Code

Abstract

In Li v. Yellow Cab Co. the Supreme Court of California, although recognizing that section 1714 of the Civil Code codified contributory negligence, nevertheless adopted a comparative negligence system for California. Professor Englard analyzes the confrontation between court and Code and concludes that Li represents the inevitable failure of the 19th-century attempt to codify the common law.
