Mark Fredrickson and Lauren D’Cruz Co-Author Article for MDLA’s Minnesota Defense Magazine

September 10, 2015

Mark Fredrickson and Lauren D’Cruz recently wrote an article for the MDLA’s Minnesota Defense magazine discussing whether fault can be apportioned between a tortfeasor who acted negligently and a tortfeasor who committed an intentional tort. Although this question has not been settled by Minnesota courts, the policies underlying the Minnesota Supreme Court’s holding in Staab v. Diocese of St. Cloud, 853 N.W.2d 713 (Minn. 2014) clear the way for the application of comparative fault principles to apportion fault between a negligent tortfeasor and a co-defendant who is an intentional tortfeasor.
