Tort Liability For Boston Marathon Bombing?

Comments Off

Walter Olson at Overlawyered is concerned there may be tort liability for the Boston Marathon bombing.

Eric Turkewitz at the New York Personal Injury Law Blog explains why the answer is no – there will not be tort liability for the bombing.

So here's the answer on potential liability: No. As in, it won't happen, no way, no how, you gotta be kidding me, and I can't believe there was actually a panel discussion regarding it.

– Turkewitz

You really should read both posts, but particularly Turkewitz's post explaining why tort liability will not materialize. Lawyers are not in the business of taking unwinnable cases. And the very few lawyers who do, don't stay in business very long.
