Northeastern University School of Law Research Paper
In this article the author applies a torts causation framework in order to examine the case for African American reparations. The focus is on group claims as opposed to individual claims for reparations. The causation analysis is undertaken drawing an analogy to mass toxic torts. The author concludes that the best case for reparations is that they be made in the form of social welfare programs delivered by the federal government.
