Overview

The Advanced Torts casebook is designed for courses on the major tort law subjects that are not included in the basic first-year tort courses. The popularity and consistent use of this casebook reflect the fact that the book is unique in its in-depth coverage of advanced torts subjects, which are now the principal growth areas of tort law. Subjects covered in Advanced Torts include defamation, the rights of privacy and publicity, harm to family relationships, wrongful birth, malicious prosecution, abuse of process, interference with common law civil rights, liability for economic loss, interference with contracts, interference with business relations, unfair competition, common law rights to literary and commercial creations and ideas, trade secrets, and other economic torts including injurious falsehood.

The fourth edition maintains the casebook's clear organization and rich range of cases from not only the United States, but also England, Canada, Australia and other common law legal systems—cases selected as the most valuable for instructional purposes as well as for their influence in shaping tort law. New cases and notes, addressing such developing areas as liability for defamation in Internet communications, bring the material fully up-to-date. The casebook has ample material for courses and seminars on economic torts (business torts) or defamation and privacy (tort law and the communications media).
