This Comment examines the tort liability of broadcasters for injuries that result from children imitating acts of television violence. The author proposes a cause of action in negligence derived from tort doctrines that recognize a special duty to children. The author further argues that the First Amendment does not preclude liability and illustrates how any effect on free speech would be minimal.
