Restatement of the Law Third,

Torts: Concluding Provisions

This project is part of ALI’s ongoing revision of the Restatement Second of Torts. Portions of the Restatement Second have been superseded by the Restatement Third of Torts: Products Liability, Apportionment of Liability, Liability for Physical and Emotional Harm, and Liability for Economic Harm.
This Restatement addresses topics not covered in another part of the Restatement Third of Torts that either require updating since publication of the Restatement Second or were not previously addressed but should be covered in a modern torts Restatement. These topics will include medical liability, vicarious liability, wrongful death and survival actions, among others.

At its meetings on October 13 and October 22-23, 2020, the Council approved §§ 1-3 of Chapter 11, Liability of Medical Professionals and Institutions, in Council Draft No. 1, excluding Illustrations 5-8 in § 2. The Reporters may revise the excluded Illustrations in a future draft. There was insufficient time to discuss the remainder of the Council Draft.

The Council approved the initiation of this project in January 2019. ALI members may join the Members Consultative Group.

All draft approvals are subject to the discussion at the meeting and usual editorial prerogative.
