Tort law is the body of law governing negligence, intentional misconduct, and other wrongful acts for which civil actions can be brought. The conventional wisdom is that the rules, concepts, and structures of tort law are neutral and unbiased, free of considerations of gender and race. In The Measure of Injury, Martha Chamallas and Jennifer Wriggins prove that tort law is anything but gender and race neutral. Drawing on an in-depth analysis of case law ranging from the Jim Crow South to the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund, the authors demonstrate that women and minorities have been under-compensated in tort law and that traditional biases have resurfaced in updated forms to perpetuate patterns of disparate recovery based on race and gender. Grappling with tort theory, the intricacies of legal doctrine and the practical effects of legal rules, The Measure of Injury is a unique treatise on torts that uncovers the public and cultural dimensions of this always-controversial domain of private law.

Are individuals responsible for the consequences of actions taken by their community? What about their community's inaction or its attitudes? In this innovative book, Larry May departs from the traditional Western view that moral responsibility is limited to the consequences of overt individual action. Drawing on the insights of Arendt, Jaspers, and Sartre, he argues that even when individuals are not direct participants, they share responsibility for various harms perpetrated by their communities.

Der Alien Tort Claims Act

Zwischen Völkerrecht und amerikanischer Außenpolitik

Der amerikanische "Alien Tort Claims Act" (ATCA) wurde nach seinem Inkrafttreten im Jahr 1789 zunächst wenig beachtet. Durch die bahnbrechende Entscheidung Filartiga v. Pena-Irala gewann der ATCA jedoch unerwartet Bedeutung für die Geltendmachung internationaler Menschenrechte vor amerikanischen Bundesgerichten. Seit den 1980er-Jahren bildet das Gesetz die Grundlage einer Reihe umstrittener und vielseitig diskutierter Gerichtsentscheidungen. Inga Meyer beleuchtet die komplexen Hintergründe und Zusammenhänge der ATCA-Gerichtsbarkeit. Sie legt die historischen Hintergründe dar und analysiert richtungsweisende Gerichtsurteile. Sie untersucht zentral die mögliche Rechtmäßigkeit von ATCA-Klagen aus völkerrechtlicher Perspektive, bevor sie das Gesetz und seine Anwendung aus Sicht der amerikanischen Exekutive und ihrer Außenpolitik hinterfragt.

Tort Law: A Modern Perspective is an advanced yet accessible introduction to tort law for lawyers, law students, and others. Reflecting the way tort law is taught today, it explains the cases and legal doctrines commonly found in casebooks using modern ideas about public policy, economics, and philosophy. With an emphasis on policy rationales, Tort Law encourages readers to think critically about the justifications for legal doctrines. Although the topic of torts is specific, the conceptual approach should pay dividends to those who are interested broadly in regulatory policy and the role of law. Incorporating three decades of advancements in tort scholarship, Tort Law is the textbook for modern torts classrooms.
