Connecticut Law Review
I argue that the tort system can complement the efforts of either institutions such as markets, legislatures and administrative agencies to make public policy. Solving complex social problems typically requires the cooperation of several policymaking institutions, each with its own strengths and weaknesses. My examination of lawsuits against the gun industry reveals that the tort system can and should play an active policymaking role in reducing gun violence.
