What is a tort?

A class action lawsuit is called a tort, but I don't know if that's what you mean.

Well, I wouldn't go that far. For one thing, a class action lawsuit is NOT "called a tort."

Well, Yin, apparently not as was so graciously pointed out by Mr. Hurst. How are you? Still flinging footwear?

B3AST is correct - a tort is a civil wrong. Basically, things like negligence (99% of all auto collision cases) and things that you sue people for, other than breach of contract cases.
