This chapter reports 1982 cases involving tort claims within the school context. Torts are seen here as separate independent civil causes of action that define a particular level of conduct that the law recognizes individuals owe one another. This chapter discusses negligence, the most common tort, at greatest length, analyzing cases involving student injuries, educational malpractice, and negligence. Also reviewed are cases involving liability insurance, assault and battery, defamation, false imprisonment, tortious interference with a contract, and constitutional torts. (MJL)
