Here is one of the first books specifically geared for legal practitioners involved in liability arising out of participation in professional and amateur athletics. In a lively and highly readable manner, Yasser applies tort law principles to a wide variety of sports cases--from such publicized cases as Dale Hackbart v. Boobie Clark, Rudy Tomjanovich v. The Los Angeles Lakers, and Bill Walton v. Dr. Cook to the more obscure such as Virgil v. Time Inc. and Spahn v. Julian Messner Inc. In each he expertly underscores relevant, useful information that can be used in daily practice. The author, a torts professor and sports fan, examines in a sports setting such torts as negligence, products liability, and intentional interference with contractual relations. In each chapter, Professor Yasser prints edited versions of the landmark sports cases, takes an in-depth look at one major legal issue, and provides a broad summary of the law and a bibliography.
