ANSWER: US Tort Filings


You will probably need access to a legal database such as Lexis Nexis Academic, Hein Online, or Westlaw. Many large public university libraries offer onsite access. There are public library versions of Lexis that might be accessible remotely to library card holders, but they will likely have far less coverage. As just a few examples of possible searches in Lexis/Legal/Law Reviews, the search: negligent and infliction and "emotional stress" and torts gets 118 hits; "negligent infliction" and "emotional stress" and torts gets 68; "negligent infliction" w/10 "emotional stress" gets only 2 (where the phrases are no more than 10 words apart). The W/nn means either one can come first in the text: "negligent infliction" w/50 "emotional stress" gets 5 hits, "negligent infliction" pre/50 "emotional stress" gets only 4, where the first phrase comes first. If you want to narrow to a particular state, you can try searches like: "negligent infliction" and "emotional stress" and illinois, but bear in mind that those huge Law Review articles can mention a place or name in one of maybe hundreds of cited references. You might prefer to first limit the search by the type of tort (in this case maybe "war crimes" or "atrocities"); see if any law reviews talk about any similar cases. If so, you might even do a new search combining the case citation (or parts of it) with the state or region search. For example the case citation: PERVIS TYRONE PAYNE, PETITIONER v. TENNESSEE might be searched as: payne pre/3 tennessee.

The idea is to go after war criminals, with their victims as the plaintiffs, that now are lying about their acts. This would be used for a particular international criminal in the US that is on tour. His crimes were not occurring in the US, and the plaintiffs will not be able to seek justice in the country of occurrence, but many are here in the US.
