Cases and Materials on Torts

Front Cover
West Group, Jan 1, 2001 - Law - 755 pages
This law school casebook includes both new and classic cases selected for their teachability and stimulation for students. Newspaper articles and editorials have been reprinted to emphasize public controversies surrounding particular tort law decisions. Notes are straightforward and designed to explore policy concerns rather than struggle with clarifying black letter law. Highlights of new cases include a second-hand smoke case and another case of university students suing for battery after being intentionally exposed to radiation on a field trip, intentional interference with contractual and economic relations, and sexual harassment as grounds for a suit for intentional infliction of mental distress.
