Business Torts: A Practical Guide to Litigation
Call Number: KF1250 .B845 2014
Publication Date: 2014
This book is a "how to" book on litigating a business torts case. While there are many aspects of litigating and trying business torts cases that distinguish them from other types of cases (personal injury, medical malpractice, or IP, for example), there are no "start-to-finish" guidebooks offering practical litigation advice unique to these cases.
Business Torts and Unfair Competition Handbook
Call Number: KF3195.Z9 B87 2006
Publication Date: 2006
This book first addresses substantive issues, beginning with the changing role of business torts in antitrust litigation and continuing with the extent to which antitrust concepts have been invoked in business tort litigation (focusing on the competitive privilege and the Noerr-Pennington defense). The next chapter surveys the field of unfair competition, followed by an examination of the business torts of commercial disparagement and defamation. Subsequent chapters address interference torts, the common law and statutory torts of fraud and negligent misrepresentation, the field of misappropriation of trade secrets, and recent developments in the area of punitive damages.
