Abstract

This is the Israeli report to the Tort and Insurance Law Yearbook. It critically evaluates notable developments which took place in Israeli tort law in 2012. Part A discusses legislation and legislative bills in various areas, including state liability, compensation and assistance following the cancellation of a flight or a change in its conditions, road accidents victims' compensation, and disclosure of internet user information in tort litigation. Part B discusses 2012 Supreme Court decisions on wrongful life and wrongful birth, the truth defense in defamation law, the evidentiary weight of acquittal in a criminal procedure, the applicability of the contributory negligence defense in an action for deceit, the interrelation between tort law and property law, a tort-based duty to disclose an anonymous user's identity, and the scope of the medical duty to disclose information. Part B also analyzes recent developments concerning a uniquely Israeli head of damages - "infringement of autonomy."
