This landmark work formulates clear principles of law governing apportionment of liability in cases where there are more actors than a single plaintiff and single defendant, different degrees of blameworthiness, derivative claims, or different tort claims against different defendants in the same case. It was drafted in response to the nearly universal adoption of comparative liability. As a result, it completely supersedes the comparable provisions in the Restatement Second of Torts.
