Exculpatory Clause Enforcement

Exculpatory contract clause may excuse negligence, but only if:
  1. enforcement does not adversely affect the public interest;
  2. the exculpated party is not under a legal duty to perform;
  3. the contract does not involve a public utility or common carrier; and
  4. the contract does not grow out of unequal bargaining power or is otherwise unconscionable.
