Question
· Your score will be determined by evaluation of your substantive content. Your analysis and solutions as applicable must be based on the principles of law. Please describe how application of the principles of law to the key facts support your determination of the issues. You need to show the reasoning behind your decision.

The length of your response should be at least one page.

· Key facts are those facts that determine if the principles of law are met. You do not need to repeat the factual scenario. Doing so does not meet the requirement of recognizing the key facts. You must still demonstrate you recognize those key facts.

Factual Scenario: Ruth carelessly parks her car on a steep hill, leaving the car in neutral and failing to engage the parking brake. The car rolls down the hill, knocking down an electric line. The sparks from the broken line ignite a grass fire. The fire spreads until it reaches a gasoline station one mile away. There is a tanker truck offloading gasoline to the station’s gas tanks. The fire ignites the gasoline being pumped into the tanks, and one of the tanks explodes, causing part of the station structure to fall on and injure a passing motorist, Jim. Can Jim recover damages from Ruth? Why or why not? Identify the cause of action. Discuss each element of the cause of action, and relate them to your assessment of whether Jim can recover damages from Ruth.
