Chapter Summary

Civil law, for instance, embraces a much broader set of relationships than under the old system, requiring longer, more detailed, and more sophisticated laws. And within civil law, the same is true of tort law, the subject of this chapter. The chapter analyzes several aspects of the new tort law. It presents a brief overview of the tort law provisions of the Russian Federation Civil Code. The chapter outlines a more detailed examination of the code provisions on the tort liability of the state. It reviews some of the judicial practice in cases involving state tort liability. Although the new Civil Code tort rules are much more comprehensive and detailed than their predecessors, their basic thrust is not dramatically different from that of Soviet-era legislation. During most of the Soviet period, it is true, there was no compensation for moral harm or damages arising from defects in products or workmanship.
