Noun. From the French word for "wrong," it is an act or omission that, while (usually) not criminal, hurts someone else physically, financially, or otherwise, and allows the injured party to sue whoever did it. Tort suits can provide lots of money for lawyers.

"Tort" is a former high school wrestler from Clinton, NJ of Italian descent. He has a subtle mono-toned demeanor and is known to be incredibly principled. Tort is infamous for having and unparalleled ability to take a punch. Once while trying to quit smoking, he instructed his immediate friends to punch him in the face if they see him smoking. Later that night at a Christmas party Tort smoked a pack and a half of cigarettes receiving punches in the face chest and junk for every one but refused to stay down. Many facts known as "Chuck Norris Facts" originated as Tort facts but later appeared on chuck Norris web sites.
