The new edition focuses on the current controversies in Tort law. New changes in the law endorsed by the Restatement (Third) are explored. The casebook strives to invigorate the study of intentional torts by going beyond the traditional personal injury approach. Battery is considered in its increasing application in environmental litigation. The torts of intentional interference with contractual and economic relations, which almost all students will encounter in whatever field of practice (e.g. corporate, entertainment, public interest) they ultimately choose are introduced in the basic intentional tort section including the case that nearly bankrupt Texaco and the potential liability of an environmental public interest group for encouraging a boycott. The negligence section addresses controversies ranging from parental liability for failure to prevent a child from committing homicides, mental distress for exposure to toxic pollutants to tobacco industry liability. The necessity defense is considered in the context of Katrina. Negligence is critiqued from feminist, economic and other perspectives. Cases have been selected for their teach ability and stimulation for students. Notes are straight forward to allow professors freedom to focus on policy concerns.With CasebookPlus youâe(tm)ll receive a print book, lifetime digital access to a downloadable eBook, 12-month online access to self-assessment quizzes tied to the casebook, leading study aids, Gilbert® Law Dictionary and an outline starter.eBook and Learning Library - Lifetime digital access to a downloadable eBook, 12-month online access to self-assessment quizzes tied to the casebook, leading study aids, Gilbert® Law Dictionary and an outline starter.

Through its excellence in scholarship, clarity, and ease of use, this casebook engages readers in critical thinking about tort law and its operation in modern social settings. It sets forth crisply-edited classic tort cases, new tort law trends, and nuances in developing case law that impact the law and its application in the real world. Principal cases are not discarded just for the sake of change but because new cases reflect important changes in the law and present current doctrine in insightful and highly effective ways. The casebook goes beyond judicial decisions and includes key tort centered legislation and comparative perspectives where relevant. The casebook encourages the student to understand the English and American common law foundations of Tort law and to debate modern trends within various policy prescriptions. Unbiased in its approach and organized in manageable sections of information, the casebook is a superb tool for productive and stimulating classroom debate. The authors are an outstanding combination of respected scholars and practitioners. They have worked as a team since the 9th edition, published in 1994. Victor Schwartz was an Advisor on the first three sections of the Restatement (Third): Products Liability, Apportionment of Liability, and Physical and Emotional Harm. David Partlett is presently an Advisor on two new Restatements relating to liability for intentional torts and for defamation and privacy just established.

As a part of our CasebookPlus offering, you'll receive the print book along with lifetime digital access to the eBook. Additionally you'll receive 12-month online access to the Learning Library which includes quizzes tied specifically to your book, an outline starter and digital access to leading study aids in that subject and the Gilbert® Law Dictionary. The study aids included are Torts in a Nutshell, Acing Tort Law and Exam Pro on Torts. The redemption code will be shipped to you with the book. For more than seventy years, leading torts scholars at the Yale Law School and elsewhere have used this casebook. It unconventionally begins with strict liability. A recent study published by the Arizona State Law Journal shows that this sequence results in students experiencing a greater appreciation of "the judge's role as being influenced by social, economic, and ideological factors and a sense of fairness and less as a process of rule application than do students who begin their study with either intentional torts or negligence." The Sixth Edition is more accessible to students because of substantially expanded textual explanations and more tightly edited opinions. Updates include frequent discussions of Restatement (Third) provisions and a significant number of recently decided cases including several from the Supreme Court addressing products preemption, displacement in climate change litigation, and First Amendment limits on liability for intentional infliction of emotional distress. Comprehensive Changes A new appendix to the casebook, "The Litigation Process," facilitates the student's introduction to the torts litigation process. Relevant provisions of the recently adopted Restatement (Third) of Torts are quoted throughout the text. The Sixth Edition adds an unusual number of recently decided cases, including several from the Supreme Court of the United States addressing issues such as preemption, displacement in climate change litigation, and First Amendment limits on the tort of intentional infliction of emotional distress. The amount of textual explanation in introductions and in notes has been greatly expanded to facilitate the student's understanding. In addition, the enhanced notes often ask students to consider newly added questions as they read the opinions and prepare for classroom discussion. The excerpted opinions are more tightly edited. The chapter in the previous edition that addressed damages has been split into two chapters, one covering "Damages" and the other, "Other Limitations on Liability Based on Type of Harm."
