  • Descrição: The scope of strict liability should be expanded by abandoning the distinction between 'abnormally dangerous' and less hazardous activities used in the Restatement (Second) of Torts. Strict liability is a better approach than negligence whenever the victim is essentially passive and unable to take precautions to avoid the harm. In cases involving use of property, strict liability should generally apply whenever mischief is allowed to cross the property's boundaries. However, an exception should be made to avoid excessive transaction costs of litigation, as with cases involving escape of water.
