Word of the Day

From the dictionary at law.com

tortfeasor n. a person who commits a tort (civil wrong) either intentionally or through negligence.

Example:

God, why do you have to be such a little tortfeasor?  You know you’re adopted, right?  I remember the day me and mom and dad went down to the pound and picked you out of a cage full of little tortfeasors.  Dad picked you because he said your face reminded him of a dog he had as a kid.

Note the related phrase ‘joint tortfeasors’, which law.com defines thusly.

joint tortfeasors npl. butt-buddies
