Law/Patents - Law (general)
English term or phrase: tort
Definition from Minnesota's Department of Administration:
A wrongful act, other than a breach of contract, such that the law permits compensation of damages.

Example sentence(s):
  • Intentional torts are those wrongs which the defendant knew or should have known would occur through their actions or inactions. Negligent torts occur when the defendant's actions were unreasonably unsafe. Cornell University Law School
  • While some torts are also crimes punishable with imprisonment, the primary aim of tort law is to provide relief for the damages incurred and deter others from committing the same harms. HG.org Worldwide Legal Directories
  • Part I of this report concludes that Congress has the authority to enact tort reform legislation generally, under its power to regulate interstate commerce, and to make such legislation applicable to intrastate torts, because tort suits generally affect interstate commerce. docuticker.com
