Case Caption: Cape Air IInternational, (Appellant/Defendant,) vs. Tommy Lindsey and Denise Lindsey, (Appellees/Plaintiffs.)Case Number: S.Ct.Civ. No.: 2009-030Date: 06/23/2010Author: Cabret, Maria M. Citation: Summary:

The Small Claims Division of the Superior Court erred in granting judgment in favor of the plaintiffs for the value of jewelry taken from their baggage after flying on one of the defendant's planes. Although the defendant did not establish that the liability limitation in the contract of carriage governed the claim, the plaintiffs failed to meet their burden of proving that the defendant's negligence caused the loss, and the Superior Court should have, therefore, granted judgment to the defendant.
