Description

This advanced torts book is designed for a two or three hour tort course for students who have had a basic tort class and wish to pursue in-depth some of the important topics of tort law that are not covered in much depth in their basic tort course, or not covered at all. Unlike some advanced torts texts that devote much of their attention to economic and business torts, products liability or toxic torts, this book offers materials on a number of areas: trespass and nuisance, economic torts, products liability, insurance, tort reform and non-tort compensation systems, intentional infliction of emotional distress, defamation, privacy, misuse of legal process and constitutional torts. The third edition explores the increasing importance of constitutional law when traditional tort law--particularly the torts of intentional infliction of emotional distress, defamation, and privacy--is applied to expressive activities.
