The Fifth Edition of Cases and Materials on the Law of Torts continues the tradition of using, as much as possible, minimally edited cases so that the book can serve as a vehicle for teaching first-year students the essential techniques of case analysis and legal method. The entire book has been modified to accommodate the many developments in the law of torts since the Fourth Edition was published in 2004. For example, the basic chapters on negligence and causation recognize and discuss the now finally adopted Restatement (Third) of Torts: Liability for Physical & Emotional Harm and the recent case law expanding liability for loss of a chance. The duty section has also undergone a major overhaul to reflect the conceptual framework by which courts think about duty and to elucidate the pervasive role of foreseeability in courts' duty decisions. The Materials on Product's Liability capture the many recent developments in that area; and the materials on dignitary harms reflect the increasing interaction between tort law and constitutional law as well as the expanding potential reach of international human rights conventions. Finally the Fifth Edition retains its comprehensive coverage of the entire field of torts so as to give instructors, all of whom are having to accommodate a curriculum that has cut back on the number of credit hours assigned to torts, the widest possible choice of subjects on which they may wish to concentrate in the limited time they have available.

This title is a part of our CasebookPlusâ,,¢ offering as ISBN 9781634608916. Learn more at CasebookPlus.com. 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 teachability and stimulation for students. Notes are straight forward to allow professors freedom to focus on policy concerns.

The casebook, which is organized along traditional doctrinal lines, teaches students how tort law works to resolve disputes in the real world of litigation and settlement negotiations. A teacher can start with intentional torts or with negligence. The first chapter is an overview of trial court procedure in tort cases; the second is a concise treatment of intentional torts and defenses; and the third introduces negligence law with a streamlined treatment of the core breach-of-duty/substandard conduct concept. Subsequent chapters treat the remainder of the prima facie case in negligence, the principal defenses to negligence liability, and some of the basic concepts entailed in multiparty litigation. The book's concluding chapters are basic coverage of medical malpractice, common law strict liability, products liability, and nuisance.

This is the second edition of the first casebook in the United States devoted exclusively to trade secret law. As with the successful first edition, it is challenging yet user-friendly to students in order to facilitate their reading and understanding of the material. It is designed to be used by law students (and business students) with no prior background in intellectual property law. Due to the breadth of the subject matter, professors who teach trade secret law need not be intellectual property experts, but can specialize in a variety of fields, including employment law, torts, and unfair competition. The casebook also provides the context to re-teach and reinforce many of the basic concepts of law that students learned as 1L's, including tort law, contract law, property law, civil procedure, constitutional law, and criminal law. This new edition includes timely additions relating to the Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016 (DTSA) and the EU Trade Secret Directive, two laws that went into effect in mid-2016, and which are certain to change the landscape of trade secret law in the United States and Europe. Unlike the only other existing casebook on the topic, this book continues to focus on and teach the predominant source of trade secret law in the U.S., the Uniform Trade Secrets Act (UTSA) as interpreted by courts throughout the U.S. The authors have made conscious and thoughtful decisions about the way in which the information throughout the casebook is presented and organized. The general organization of the casebook follows a logical analytical approach to understanding trade secret law with the chapters progressing from proving the essential elements of a trade secret claim to defensive tactics and remedies, managing trade secrets, and criminal actions. It also addresses employment, management, and international issues.

Healthcare professionals face an increasing threat of litigation from parties whom they have never met in their daily medical practice and who look nothing like the traditional patient. The so-called ’non-patient’ may take many forms”for example, a person who is injured or killed by a mentally-ill, physically-disabled or diseased patient; a wrongfully-accused parent in a child neglect/abuse case; or a local authority which is put to the expense of caring for a negligently-treated patient. This book explores the legal principles and conundrums which arise when determining a healthcare professional’s liability in negligence towards a wide variety of non-patients. The topic is assuming increasing legal importance and relevance, given the potential for many non-patient claims to give rise to class actions litigation, and in light of the legislative and human rights interventions, and the frequent appellate judicial consideration, which non-patient claims have attracted in recent times. The aim of the book is to have utility for both legal and medical professionals; for academics and students of comparative medical negligence and tort law; and for law reformers who may be interested in adopting certain features of statutory models elsewhere which pertain to some non-patient claims, such as those based upon ’Good Samaritan’ conduct. Important parallels or counterpoints from other common law jurisdictions, in which courts and commentators have grappled with the legal complexities of non-patient claims, are also discussed and critically analyzed.
