Tort Law and the Public Interest

Topics: 

Participants in the 1990 "Tort Law and the Public Interest" Assembly concluded that tort adjudication can be unpredictable, protracted, and costly with uneven compensation. They supported voluntary alternatives to tort litigation, including mediation and arbitration but were sharply divided over caps on damage awards and other issues.
