Just the facts: This driver was transporting a group of friends back from the Jersey Shore when one of her passengers, the one celebrating his birthday a little rambunctiously, untied her bikini top at 60 mph. She was moved to modesty and lost control of the car in the process of covering herself. The birthday-celebrating passenger was killed. Another passenger sued, saying she should have prioritized maintaining control of the car and put her modesty second to the safety of her car, her passengers, and other drivers on the road.

Your predictions: Did the court find in the driver's favor, or did the court find her negligent and responsible for the accident? [Note: to my knowledge, the court did not see these photos, so don't let them sway your thinking. I'm including them here as click bait, and I'm not ashamed to admit it.]


The answer is here, but please comment before reading the verdict.
