TitleSerious Tort Reform Isn't: A Critique of Professor Sugarman's "Serious Tort Law Reform"
Author(s)Harry M. Snyder
First Page893
AbstractIn another critique of Prof. Sugarman's proposal, the author argues that Prof. Sugarman's proposals do little to practically solve the current problems of victim compensation, and in fact leave many victims uncompensated and does not provide incentives for safe behavior. The author further argues that Prof. Sugarman's proposals lack the requisite impartiality to objectively effect serious tort reform.
