Respondent Superior Case Summary

Satisfactory Essays
Rebecca, If the agent is not acting within the scope of employment, respondent Superior could not apply. For example, if a delivery truck driver was on the way to work and hit someone; respondent Superior would not apply. Is in the same scenario, the delivery truck driver was on his route and hit someone; respondent Superior could apply. The assignment from last week is also a great example of respondent superior not applying. Respondent Superior ultimately does not apply when the agent is acting with their personal interests in mind and not the interests of the employer. Kevin, I agree that this case seems like they manipulated the law. They manipulated the law by never bringing up how the driver the hit the plaintiff was a drunk driver
