Florida State is hosting a symposium on John Goldberg and Ben Zipursky's civil recourse theory on February 11 and 12, 2011. The lineup includes torts scholars Jules Coleman, Arthur Ripstein, Ernest Weinrib, Heidi Hurd, Jason Solomon, Tony Sebok, John Gardner, Stephen Perry, and Scott Hershovitz. It also focuses on the theory's migration from tort to other areas of private law. In spite of my criticism, it is nice to see this theory get the attention it richly deserves. The announcement from Florida State is here. Larry Solum's coverage at Legal Theory Blog is here.
