Torts case briefs are about civil injuries, other than a breach of contract, that result in damages.  These are non-criminal cases.  You’ll find case briefs on personal injury in this category.  A tort involves a person, or organization, that has a obligation or responsibility for another person and fails to protect that person.  For example, a store owner can be held responsible for a customers safety while the customer is shopping.  The store owner would commit a tort if he or she didn’t clean up wet floors and a customer is injured after slipping.
