A proper decision. If the owners knew of a hazardous situation, ie no brakes, and did not inform the tech, then there should be liability. Otherwise, no way. The tech in this case was careless.

The mechanic had the burden of seeing to it that the car was not in gear and brakes were set and/or tires were blocked before doing anything to it. The owner and his passenger should not have even been in the work area for obvious safety concerns. I say the mechanic was doubly careless and ignorant of safe operating procedures.

I agree. I almost could not believe my eyes on this one! Having grown up in a family of mechanics, that's one of the first things you learn: before starting the thing to work on it, make sure it's in park, emergency brake engaged, and wheels chocked. For Pete's sake.....
