During 1978, cases pertaining to pupil injuries (mainly involving athletics) and employee injuries under workmen's compensation laws continued to dominate tort litigation in the educational sphere. Several noteworthy cases, however, were rendered in the emerging areas of educational malpractice and constitutional torts. The cases discussed are organized under the headings of negligence, negligence defenses, employee injuries, defamation, liability insurance, and constitutional torts. (Author/IRT)
