This article discusses four selected examples from the tort law of North Carolina. These examples isolate instances in which the result of a case might not have warranted the language used or when the language of the cases was picked up and carried forward in subsequent cases without adequate analysis. Perhaps attorneys can point out these problems to the courts, and perhaps the courts might choose to make helpful clarifications.
