This volume systematically examines the social, legal and policy dimensions of the tort reform debate in America. It analyzes solid empirical data, looks beyond popular myths about frivolous lawsuits, and tackles a variety of contentious issues: Should punitive damages be capped? Who is favoured by tort law? Who loses, and why?;Koenig and Rustad's detailed case study analysis also reveals disturbing gender inequities in a legal system that is largely dominated by men. Because women are disproportionately injured by medical products, impermissible HMO cost cutting, medical malpractice and sexual exploitation, restrictions on the rights to recovery in these fields inevitably creates gender injustice.
