Publication Date



The opinions included in this law school casebook are designed for teaching case analysis and the social and economics consequences of legal decisions. Enough of the majority, and often the dissent opinion is presented to illustrate how the case fits with precedents and allows students to evaluate the arguments on either side of the case. It emphasizes accidents and the role of fault in society's management of their costs, and the historical basis for modern torts doctrines. It details intentional torts and a wide range of other non-accident wrongs.
