Abstract:     
Michigan's Supreme Court has reversed a significant number of tort-law precedents over a short time because of changes in the court's political majority. Those changes disrupt practice and diminish public confidence in the court. Tort law has a steadying tendency in its prescription for reasonable care. The court should address itself once again to the foundation of tort law to diminish the number and negative effects of too-frequent reversals of tort law precedents.
