In R. v. Ewanchuk, the Supreme Court of Canada held that sexual touching must be accompanied by express, contemporaneous consent. In doing so, the Court rejected the idea that sexual consent could be "implied." Ewanchuk was a landmark ruling, reflecting a powerful commitment to women's equality and sexual autonomy. In articulating limits on the circumstances under which women can be said to "consent" to sexual touching, however, the decision also restricts their autonomy - specifically, by denying them a voice in determining the norms that should govern their intimate relationships and sexual lives. In Implied Consent and Sexual Assault, Michael Plaxton argues that women should have the autonomy to decide whether, and under what circumstances, sexual touching can be appropriate in the absence of express consent. Though caution should be exercised before resurrecting a limited doctrine of implied consent, there are reasons to think that sexual assault law could accommodate a doctrine without undermining the sexual autonomy or equality rights of women. In reaching this conclusion, Plaxton challenges widespread beliefs about autonomy, consent, and the objectives underpinning the offence of sexual assault in Canada. Drawing upon a range of contemporary criminal law theorists and feminist scholars, Implied Consent and Sexual Assault reconsiders the nature of mutuality in a world dominated by gender norms, the proper scope of criminal law, and the true meaning of sexual autonomy.

A careful mix of law, policy, ethics, and economics, Studies in American Tort Law is designed for first-year torts courses. Recognizing that torts is a prime battleground for social policy, this book seeks to reflect not only the current rules on injury compensation, but also the policy choices underlying those rules. Within a clear, doctrinal framework, a range of views is presented, reflecting dominant themes in tort law. Students are introduced to, but not overwhelmed with, law and economics. Economic analysis is employed when particularly useful (e.g., in connection with the negligence balancing test, strict liability, and calculation of damages). The law-and-economics notes can be used as a starting point for classroom discussion, or they can be allowed to stand on their own, without need for elaboration. The fourth edition includes: * Comprehensive citations to the Restatement, Third, of Torts * The latest Supreme Court precedent on punitive damages and preemption * Readable statutory excerpts reflecting new legislative developments * Careful attention to ethical issues in the practice of law * Scores of citations to new court decisions * Several new principal cases. The fourth edition is completely up-to-date to 2009, including a rich selection of materials reflecting the abundance of important recent developments in tort law. A comprehensive teacher's manual updated for the fourth edition, Teaching Torts, will be available. Mastering Torts: A Student's Guide to the Law of Torts (4th ed.), a short narrative text which parallels the casebook, assists students to fully understand this area of law. A Power Point file containing roughly 200 slides corresponding to Studies in American Tort Law is available to adopting professors. To request the file, contact Vincent R. Johnson at vjohnson@stmarytx.edu.
