||This course covers pure economic torts, as opposed to torts causing physical harms to person or property and as opposed to purely dignitary torts such as defamation. However, the course will briefly look certain defamation rules that are implicated in economic torts. Coverage will include nominate common law torts such as injurious falsehood, conversion of intangible economic values, bad faith breach of contract, wrongful discharge, and breach of fiduciary duty. It will also include intentional and unintentional interference with contract and with business prospects, the "prima facie tort," and liability for misrepresentation. Time and interest permitting, it will touch on copyright, trademark, trade secrets, misappropriation and right of publicity. Lawyer malpractice may also be covered.
