Professor Ellen Pryor (UNT/Dallas) and Professor Ken Simons (BU) are co-Reporters for the Restatement Third of Torts: Intentional Torts to Persons. They have completed a Preliminary Draft addressing battery, assault, and transferred intent. The Draft is currently under consideration by members of the American Law Institute. As part of the review process, they invite torts professors to provide feedback on the draft. They also suggest that you read the Reporter's Memorandum at ix-x, which highlights issues that are especially worthy of attention.
You should feel free to send comments directly to the Reporters, at these email addresses:
Or, if you prefer, you may post comments on this blog. Please note that the ALI has copyright in the draft; and that this is only a preliminary draft, not yet approved by the ALI, which is subject to further changes through the ALI process.
