Highlight

Flaws and weaknesses in an expert witness's opinion go to the weight the trier of fact should give the opinion and not its admissibility.
Special verdicts are upheld on appeal whenever possible, and will only be set aside when the verdict is perverse and clearly contrary to the evidence.
A voluntary acceptance of the benefit of a transaction is equivalent to a consent to all the obligations arising from it so far as the facts are known or ought to be known to the person accepting.
