There is a great wealth of diversity in the business tort laws of all fifty states and the District of Columbia. In addition to the very significant differences in the statutes of limitation, other significant differences include:
Some states have not recognized a cause of action for negligent interference with an economic advantage.
Negligent misrepresentation in one state is limited to claims against persons in the business of supplying information to others.
One state recognizes a cause of action for “strict responsibility misrepresentation.” Another state recognizes claims of “prima facie tort” for wrongs that do not fit into traditional tort categories.
And these are only a few examples of the more significant differences.
Each of the 51 state chapters includes expert analysis of the following:
Statutes of Limitation
Misappropriation of Trade Secrets
Tortious Interference with Contracts and Prospective Economic Relations
Business Defamation and Disparagement
