The American Law Institute ("ALT") is in the midst of constructing the Restatement (Third) of Torts. Two parts of the project have already been completed and published as, respectively, the Restatement (Third): Products Liability and the Restatement (Third): Apportionment of Liability. The next component, a Restatement of the "General Principles" of tort, is underway. The goal for this facet of the overall project is to provide a coherent and usable account of fundamental tort concepts including intent, negligence, duty, actual and proximate cause, abnormally dangerous activity, and the like.
