Highly publicized litigation and spectacular claims of risk and damage from asbestos and other building products, design and construction errors, and various manifestations of ''sick building syndrome" and other operational hazards have been part of a "tort crisis" 43 that is purported to have a stifling effect on innovation in a broad spectrum.
