Thank you for your patience.With the understanding that this just my legal opinion (and other lawyers may see it differently) based on these facts, I would say yes, the man is fully liable. Assuming that the woman had finished the drink isn't a defense nor does it show comparative liability on her part. Ultimately, even though it was accidental, man did spill the drink on the laptop causing damage.
