Business Torts: A Fifty State Guide, 2021 Edition provides the most recent statutory and case law developments on business torts laws for each of the fifty states and the District of Columbia. Practitioner-oriented, and written by leading state experts, each chapter summarizes the variants and developments particular to a specific state jurisdiction. You will find detailed coverage of each state’s standards regarding: misappropriation of trade secrets; tortious interference with contracts; fraud and misrepresentation; trade libel and commercial disparagement; breach of fiduciary duty; officers and directors liability; conversion; unfair competition, fraudulent transfer; economic loss; and statutes of limitation.

The 2021 Edition incorporates recent changes in the law of the various states, including:

  • The Nebraska Supreme Court has recognized the tort of trade libel and commercial disparagement in a long-awaited landmark case.
  • The Missouri legislator amended the Missouri’s Merchandising Practices Act to require a consumer bringing a claim under that act to establish that they acted as a reasonable consumer would in light of all circumstances and that the business practice alleged to be unlawful would cause a reasonable person to enter into the transaction that resulted in damages.
  • The Florida Ninth Judicial Circuit has reopened its “Business Court”, a division of the Court which handles exclusively business matters. The Business Court was closed in 2017 due to budget constraints.
  • The Hawaii Supreme Court held that a plaintiff may claim equitable tolling for fraudulent concealment.
