Torts are a diverse collection of civil wrongs which are actionable outside of either contract or statute law. Torts include negligence, private nuisance, public nuisance, breach of statutory duty, defamation, trespass to the person, trespass to land, passing off, malicious falsehood, deceit, conversion and various so-called economic torts.

The word tort comes from the Latin tortum, which means bent or twisted.[1]
