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.
§ 104. Intentional (or Reckless) Infliction of Emotional Harm
An actor who by extreme and outrageous conduct intentionally or
recklessly causes severe emotional harm to another is subject to liability for
that emotional harm and, if the emotional harm causes bodily harm, also for
the bodily harm.
