A colleague of mine is trying to put together a moot court problem involving a tort plaintiff who has refrained from mitigating his injuries for religious reasons. (Maybe something like a JW who refuses a blood transfusion for religious reasons and thereby suffers greater harm from the accident--does his religious beliefs justify his failure to avoid increasing his medical damages?) Obviously, there are interesting FE and EC problems in cases like this, and I think we have even discussed this problem on the list at some point in time.
My question is this: Does anyone know a good law review article (and/or case) that does a good job of analyzing the 1A issues in a case such as above?
I am back on the list after a brief absence, and so best holiday wishes to all (and to all a good semester break).
Cheers, Rick Duncan
