The plaintiff's son borrowed the plaintiff's automobile for an evening's pleasure trip in which the plaintiff had no interest. While on this trip, the automobile was damaged as a result of the negligence of the defendant and the driver of the plaintiff's automobile. Held, the relation of the plaintiff to his son was that of bailor and bailee, but that the negligence of the bailee could not be imputed to the bailor so as to bar recovery for the damage to the automobile in an action against the negligent defendant. Robinson v. Waffen (Me. 1930) 151 Atl. 10.
