In an attempt to elicit comments about the ALI's Restatement of Intentional Torts, Ken Simons and Ellen Pryor asked that I post the black letter portions of the current draft. If you have comments, you can post them here or send them directly to Ken and Ellen (or both). Ken can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org and Ellen at Ellen.Pryor@untsystem.edu. The entire draft, comments and all, is here.
