What can comic books and superheroes teach us about torts?  Join Law and the Multiverse co-authors James Daily and Ryan Davidson as they discuss the state actor doctrine and its implications, including sovereign immunity and comparative versus contributory negligence.  Other topics include public and private necessity, the duty to rescue, and Good Samaritan laws.  Is Batman a state actor?  Does he have a duty to rescue others, and are his actions covered by Good Samaritan laws?  Can Superman claim a defense of necessity for claims brought against him after a battle?  Find out in this out of the ordinary webcast that will give you insight into the law in a most unusual way!
