    Substituting “caused by” for “due to” is a quick way to verify correct usage.

    Correct usage:
    My low grade was due to lack of study.
    My low grade was caused by lack of study.

    Incorrect usage:
    I missed the class due to the rain.
    I missed the class caused by the rain.

    It should be corrected to:
    I missed the class because of the rain.

    I haven’t seen this particular misuse in published philosophical materials, probably because causal relations are dealt with in more precise expressions.
