Robert F. Blomquist (Valparaiso) has posted Thinking About Law and Creativity: On the 100 Most Creative Moments in American Law. For the methodology and the entire list, the paper (pdf) is here. Some of the moments on the list affect torts along with other areas, but the moments in which torts is the focus are few:
Section 520 of the Restatement (Second) of Torts (1965) (six factors for "abnormally dangerous activities" for purposes of strict liability) [#56]
Warren & Brandeis article on Privacy in the Harvard Law Review (1890) [#75]
N.Y. Times v. Sullivan (1964) [#95]
