If you have never encountered the term 'tort' before, it is defined by a legal dictionary as "The French for wrong, a civil wrong, or wrongful act, whether intentional or accidental, from which injury occurs to another." Tort law covers cases where, for example, if an operation leaves you incapacitated, you can sue the doctor or hospital. Awards of financial recompense for the for damages and suffering caused can vary widely. In 2005, a campaign was under way to impose a cap on the payouts in such cases in Illinois, and was a central issue in the race for a position on the Illinois Supreme Court.

Policing sex by Paul Johnson( Book )
9 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 5 libraries worldwide
"This collection focuses attention on an important but academically neglected area of contemporary operational policing: the regulation of consensual sexual practices. Despite the high-level public visibility of, and debate about, policing in relation to violent and abusive sexual crimes (from child sexual abuse to adult rape) very little public or scholarly attention is paid to the policing of consensual sexual practices in contemporary societies. In the context of social and cultural change 'sexual life' is largely understood as a matter of 'private life', policing plays an active part in regulating consensual sexual practices across a number of areas. This book brings together a well known and respected group of academics to explore the role of the police in shaping the boundaries of that aspect of contemporary life that we imagine to be most private and most our own, uniting scholars from a range of disciplines. It is essential supplementary readings for courses in criminology, law, policing, sociology of deviance, gender and sexuality, and cultural studies"--
