The newly revised, Fourth Edition of Illinois Tort Law provides the Illinois practitioner with a quick-reference guide that summarizes the legal requirements of virtually every cause of action based in tort and examines in detail the common law and statutory requirements of each cause of action under Illinois law. This one-volume treatise is organized so that a glance of the appropriate section will let you focus on the relevant facts and critical issues of your client's case—whether you are conducting the investigation, preparing your pleadings, drafting interrogatories, or getting ready for trial. In the Fourth Edition, Professors Bruce Ottley and Rogelio Lasso have updated all 26 chapters and incorporated changes in the law that occurred since the last edition of the book.

Easy reference to discussions and case law, Illinois Tort Law, Fourth Edition, includes information on:
 •  The liability of HMOs
 •  Claims for fear of contracting AIDS and for failure to disclose HIV status
 •  Federal and Illinois court rulings on the constitutionality of limitations on punitive and noneconomic damages
 •  Court decisions on the Wrongful Death Act and the Tort Immunity Act
 •  The "right of publicity" created by the Right to Privacy Act
 •  U.S. Supreme Court decisions regarding federal preemption and punitive damages.
 •  Municipal/Police liability under the Domestic Violence Act
