Restatement of the Law Third. Torts: Liability for Economic Harm. American Law Institute, March 2020. 1 Volume. Hardcover. New. $266. * This Restatement covers unintentional infliction of economic loss, including professional negligence, negligent misrepresentation, negligent performance of services, and public nuisance. It also will address fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, interference with contract, unjustifiable litigation, injurious falsehood, interference with the right to possession of chattels, and prima facie tort. This project is part of ALI's ongoing revision of the Restatement Second of Torts. Portions of the Restatement Second have been superseded by the Restatement Third of Torts: Products Liability, Apportionment of Liability, and Liability for Physical and Emotional Harm. "Recovery in tort for economic loss has been a growth area in American law over the last few decades," said ALI Project Reporter Ward Farnsworth, Dean of the University of Texas School of Law. "There has been a lot of judicial commentary and a lot of scholarly commentary on when it ought to be possible to recover in tort for a pure economic loss. Our goal in this Restatement has been to capture the best insights of the commentary while staying true to where the case law has been going."
