The new edition focuses on the current controversies in Tort law. Changes in the law endorsed by the Restatement (3rd) 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.

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.
