Wrongful Interference with Goods (1992)

Keywords: personal; property; goods; wrongful; interference; damage; ownership; owner; possession; recovery; tort; detinue; trespass; chattel; conversion; trover; remedy; compensation; damages; pleading; negligence; third party; co-owner

The law governing wrongful interference with personal property is based to a large extent on antiquated notions of civil procedure, which has resulted in an unnecessarily complex and technical set of rights and remedies. This project examines ways of simplifying the law and recommends replacing the older remedies with a new statutory remedy.
