Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress Claims
March 2011 — DRI's "For the Defense"
Torts Group partners Clifford J. Zatz and Kevin C. Mayer write about the difficulties with defending “tort of outrageous conduct” cases (also known as intentional infliction of emotional distress) in the Defense Research Institute’s (DRI) For The Defense
According to Zatz and Mayer, “defending these cases is treacherous. A finding of liability may keep your client from denying negligence in future personal injury cases, or it could guarantee an award of punitive damages.”
