During this morning’s special session at the American Law Institute’s Annual Meeting, Director Lance Liebman has announced that work is resuming on the Restatement (Third) of Torts: Economic Torts and Related Wrongs with Reporter Professor Ward Farnsworth. 

A few more details about the Institute’s new project on insurance law have also become available.  Principles of Liability Insurance Law is expected to consist of three chapters: Principles of Contract Law in the Liability insurance Context, Principles of Liability Coverage, and Principles of Management of Insured Liabilities.

Finally, the Institute is in the earliest stages of "Principles of Government Ethics," which aspires to reflect the current state of this emerging area, as well as perhaps proposing a Model Statute.
