The Future of Toxic Torts: Of Chemophobia, Risk as a Compensable Injury and Hybrid Compensation Systems, 25 Houston Law Review 781 (1988)

Abstract

In America, lawsuits are morality plays. We are a secular society
of many cultures that holds its most important public rituals in
the courtroom. As we separate the guilty from the innocent, the
good guys from the bad guys, we symbolically reexamine, and
sometimes redefine, our official morality-the values that establish
us as a community.
