Summary :

Intentional Torts:
Civil Claims, Remedies & Defences to Sex Abuse, Assault and Battery -
A New Paradigm

In this fast-changing world, intentional tort claims are on the rise. What does this mean for practitioners? How do plaintiffs best pursue their compensation claims? How do defendants best defend themselves against a damages award and a damaged reputation?

Among other things, this talk will outline:

* the elements of an intentional tort claim, defences and the
demise of the Ellis Defence;

* evidentiary issues, including the use of medical records of a complainant, and tendency evidence; 

* limitation periods and prejudice;

* vicariously liability, Wrongs Act amendments, and the case of Prince Alfred College;

* compensation claims under the Sentencing Act and through VOCAT;

* claims against the State and police torts;

* media attention and the use of pseudonyms.
