American Law Institute, 2000. Hardcover. New. Publisher's Price USD 173.50 Special $45. * This landmark work formulates clear principles of law governing apportionment of liability in cases where there are more actors than a single plaintiff and single defendant, different degrees of blameworthiness, derivative claims, or different tort claims against different defendants in the same case. It was drafted in response to the nearly universal adoption of comparative liability. As a result, it completely supersedes the comparable provisions in the Restatement Second of Torts. This Restatement is the first complete exposition of problems of comparative responsibility which has a potential impact on almost all areas of tort law and requires courts to coordinate liability rules and defenses in ways that transcend the traditional boundaries between various torts.
