BUSINESS TORTS LAW LESSON PLAN
Teachers: since the concept of torts is new, use as many "real-life" examples when introducing the terminology to students.
Tort: a civil (private) wrong that a court will give a remedy in the form of an action for damages. Torts differ from crimes, which rely on definitions within the law. Torts rely on case decisions and existing elements that must be present.
1. Battery - a person intentionally causes harmful bodily contact with another.
2. Assault - a person intentionally causes an unprivileged act with offensive bodily contact to another.
3. False imprisonment - restraining the movement of another person.
4. Invasion of privacy - private information that is made public that is objectionable by that person.
5. Other intentional torts: emotional disturbance, trespassing, public nuisance, fraudulent marketing.
