Report No. 85

3.13. Common Law.-

To revert to the question of liability, at common law, strict liability existed only in a few special cases, for instance, with respect to the maintenance of dangerous animals, for defamation and under the rule in Rylands v. Fletcher, 1868 LR 3 HL 330. In addition, a rebuttable presumption (known as the doctrine of res ipsa loquitur) deduced fault or negligence from the nature of the thing or act itself, such as defective construction or negligent use.
