Oh, I hate these two. It's like describing the difference between "jealously" and "envy." Kinda the same thing but not exactly."
In law, "care" seems to be with respect to a person's actions, while "diligence" seems to be in regards to following a process. The term "due" is a synonym for "reasonable," and in both cases you are trying to determine if negligence has occurred. Very subjective.
If the CBK doesn't use the same definitions for these terms as the judicial system does, then I can see a lot of confusion in court cases resulting from the use of terms with incompatible definitions.

JD, would you say a main difference between these two terms if that "due diligence" deals more in thought and "due care" more in action?

Hah, that's awesome! Wonder if that's the format for citing authors by screen name or he just got lucky that JD's handle is pretty similar to a name.
