This casebook strives to invigorate the study of intentional torts by going beyond the traditional personal injury approach in a number of ways. The book provides cases that put old torts in new contexts, raising interesting and exciting questions, for example, looking at environmental litigation and discrimination. The book offers a detailed look at economic torts in the basic intentional torts section, including the tort 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.

Negligence is critiqued from feminist, economic and other perspectives. The new edition incorporates newly adopted Restatement of Torts (Third) subjects including intentional torts, economic torts, malicious prosecution, and abuse of process. We also include new cases and notes addressing liability for failure to protect from Covid infection, Covid causation issues, and the interplay between Covid liability and workers’ compensation. In addition, the new edition includes a major election fraud defamation case, prominent defamation litigation addressing sexual assault, a fraudulent misrepresentation civil case against former President Trump, and discussion of fossil fuel corporations’ potential liability for global warming. We have included a variety of new defamation and privacy cases, and a nuisance claim against pharmacies for potential contribution to the opioid crisis.

Cases have been selected for their teachability and stimulation for students. Notes are straight forward to allow professors freedom to focus on policy concerns.
