This letter was written to John Day in response to his January 2020 column, “Use of Contracts to Avoid Responsibility in Tort.”

I always enjoy reading “Day on Torts” in the Tennessee Bar Journal, and have just finished up your piece on exculpatory clauses and Copeland.

 Better yet though is an article that makes me look up a word. Thanks for introducing me to “funambulism.”

— John Marshall Jones, deputy county attorney/chief litigation attorney, Memphis
