Diaz v. LA County Metro. Transportation Authority, B206259

In a negligence action, trial court judgment for defendant is reversed where the court erred in refusing to give a res ipsa loquitur instruction to the jury, as defendant is a common carrier and substantial evidence supported a conclusion that plaintiff's injury was the result of defendant's operation of the bus.
