THERE IS NO CIVIL IN THE QUESTIONOriginally posted by Ms 12
A civil wrong is an act or omission which harms an individual. In this case it was an omission (failure of quality control) that may have led to harm (I spose it could have been an act, they couldve been put in there deliberately). It was tort.
The reason all you people are saying contract is that you probably all do consumers in which you study the contract. If the answer was contract it would be disadvantaging those who don't do it, as it is only covered briefly in the law & society syllabus. The key word in the question was civil, indicating a civil wrong, which is the explanation of a tort in the syllabus.

Just caus some people don't know the answer don't mean you write TORT because its not in the syllabus. THat just doesnt make sense.
