State Ready Mix v. Moffat & Nichol (Cal. Ct. App. - Jan. 8, 2015)

Justice Yegan begins this opinion by saying:  "Mixing concrete, like baking a cake, is fraught with problems when the recipe is not followed."

True enough.  The major difference being that when you screw up a cake, you simply throw it away, whereas when you botch the concrete, you have to rebuild the whole freaking pier.

Or worse.

Justice Yegan holds that the mistake here was entirely the fault of State Ready Mix, Inc.  Which seems right.  Pretty important to get this stuff right, I might add.
