85. Functions of judge and jury.

In those rare cases where there is still a jury in an action of negligence the respective functions of judge and jury are as follows1: the judge decides whether the defendant owed a duty to the claimant, directs the jury on the standard of care required, decides whether there is any evidence on which a jury may infer that that standard has not been attained, instructs the jury on causation and remoteness, and lays down the principles for assessing damages
