Scholarly Lectures and Writings:

  • In this comment the author argues that municipal litigation against handgun manufacturers is a bizarre departure from traditional notions of tort law, which compensated individuals for injuries they actually suffered.  In this comment, the author argues that the field and purpose of tort law, originally aimed at compensating individuals, changed dramatically following the numerous settlements entered into by states and localities with tobacco companies. Cities which collected tens of billions of dollars from tobacco companies under litigation settlements began to look to the gun manufacturers as a potential source of revenue. Whether brought under negligence, public nuisance or strict product liability theories of liability these lawsuits were abuses of the court system which usurped the role of the legislature and only served to distort the purpose of tort law.  , Author, Comment, Missing the Target, Municipal Litigation Against Handgun Manufacturers: Abuse of the Civil Tort System,, George Mason Law Review, 9 Geo. Mason L. Rev. 1127 , 2001
