Business Torts: A Fifty State Guide, 2018 Edition
There is a great wealth of diversity in the business tort laws of all fifty states and the District of Columbia. The new 2018 Edition of Business Torts: A Fifty-State Guide helps you quickly assess the merits and pitfalls of litigation in any given jurisdiction allowing you to make the best decisions for your clients.
In addition to the very significant differences in the statutes of limitation, other significant differences include:
- Some states have not recognized a cause of action for negligent interference with an economic advantage.
- Negligent misrepresentation in one state is limited to claims against persons in the business of supplying information to others.
- One state recognizes a cause of action for "strict responsibility misrepresentation."
- Another state recognizes claims of "prima facie tort" for wrongs that do not fit into traditional tort categories.
And these are only a few examples of the more significant differences.
