Although current work on the Restatment of Torts (Third) is bringing the state of tort law into the 21st century, I project forward into the future a possible (Fourth) that would radically simplify tort doctrine across what are still treated as quite separate fields (like product liability, medical malpractice, intentional torts). Under my vision, varying responsibiities would arise from differing social roles.
