The number of torts cases was somewhat less this year than in past years, being below the forty figure rather than above it. There were no particularly significant legal developments in the field. Perhaps the cases indicate, however, a developing fashion in automobile negligence actions. At least four of the cases seem to have been brought for whiplash injuries.'
