North Carolina Torts, Second Edition provides practitioners with a comprehensive treatment of all aspects of North Carolina tort law, addressing in-depth law and doctrine relating to personal injury actions as well as that concerning harm to reputation, property, and business interests. Furthermore, in an effort to illuminate the contours of North Carolina law and indicate where it might be headed, the treatise draws liberally upon case law from other jurisdictions and secondary sources. Finally, to better serve the needs of bench and bar, the treatise addresses subjects of a statutory nature that frequently intersect with the traditional common law of torts, such as 42 U.S.C. sec. 1983, RICO, and Unfair Trade Practices, which are otherwise explored in stand-alone treatises.
"The book's treatment of tort theory was as detailed as anything I could ever hope for, yet easy to read and understand." — Lawyer's Weekly, on the first edition
"I am particularly impressed with the organization of the book in that there is a heavy emphasis on negligence rather than intentional conduct… I heartedly recommend it to my friends and hope that my adversaries don't find out about it!" — Michael J. Lewis, Lewis & Daggett, on the first edition
