During the 1986 Survey year, a number of cases of interest to practitioners were decided by the courts of New York. There have been several new legislative enactments which will also have a direct impact upon the practice of tort law. These enactments are analyzed elsewhere in this Survey volume. Following past practice, cases of the greatest significance will be highlighted, as well as those oddities which make tort law a stage for the human comedy.
