Description

A father beats his son's hockey coach to death; a man shoots seven co-workers because his paycheck was being garnished; a mother of three is shot to death by another woman in a traffic argument; an airline worker has permanent neck injury after being thrown by a passenger (whom he was preventing from retrieving his 2-year-old daughter who had run down the jetway). The ABA journal reports on third party-liability -- such as airlines, workplaces and sporting leagues -- for violent acts. Tort lawyers predict "third-party liability for injuries caused by violent acts of rage will continue to evolve over the next several years," the journal reports.
