Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0195583493, Paperback)This is the second edition of the principal New Zealand casebook on the law of torts. Although New Zealand tort law draws on the common law of other countries, the book contains many distinctive New Zealand cases.The book begins with intentional torts, such as assault and battery, false imprisonment, and the new torts developed under the Bill of Rights Act. Dramatic changes in Accident Compensation coverage mean less no fault compensation and more potential for common law tort remedies. There are also new remedies for New Zealand Bill of Rights violations.The core of the book remains negligence, with a focus on the gulf which has opened up between the British House of Lords and the New Zealand Court of Appeal. The book continues with materials on the very recent cases which threaten to fold the doctrine of stricter liability back into nuisance and negligence. This new edition also covers the Defamation Act of 1992, which replaces the defences of justification and fair comment with defences of truth and honest opinion respectively.
